Nice DIY. Thanks.
I use the sunroof buddy.

It's tight, no doubt. But i've done the clutch, entire rear end refurb, and another diff replacement in that garage. Small, but it gets the job done.

It would've been hard to find a week ago, seeing as I posted it yesterday. Glad you got yours lined up nicely.

I know, it looks terrible, it's got some surface scratching to...maybe you need to fly out and do some paint correction on it for me.

328 trunk buddy. And I did some paint correction on that area before I applied them too (put some scratches in getting the glue off from the old one).

I always wanted to make a "to scale" template that could be printed onto a cardboard piece then cut out where the ///M and 3 go, kinda like how they do it at the factory as seen on Ultimate Factories. Just place the template on the trunk and pop the emblems on...done!

Wait, what? Seriously?

All you really need is the first picture (which has been posted millions of times). If you can't figure it out from there, you don't deserve a car at all.

Default Re

Do the ///M and 3 come placed in a larger backing piece or the peel off backing is the same shape as they are?

Good info...not sure about the E46 but E9* ///M3 emblem is much smaller and it is placed more towards the center of the trunk.
BMW is just playing with this.

$50 for the ///M3 emblem? I'd probably just get one off of ebay
