Gently pry up using a plastic scraper or flat-blade screwdriver covered with a layer of tape. Check bavauto for replacement.

Ebay is a great place to look. thats where I got all of mine. Many options too. Most BMW parts stores also sell them.

Actually if you don't feel like waiting they're almost the same price at the dealer.

Only slightly more expensive for the Front Roundel at the dealer than buying from BAV Auto, eBay or Amazon without the wait. Make sure you also buy the 2 grommets that hold the Roundel on (the actual name of the emblem). To remove old one, cover area around the Roundel with a thick, soft towel, use a then flat blade screw driver (or a then nylon trim removal stick/tool) and work the edge under the Roundel at 3 o'clock and gently pry up. The pegs that go into the grommets are at 3 and 9 o'clock. Either push the old grommets into the hood or pry them out after the Roundel is off, push the new grommets into the holes till they are seated and then gently push the Roundel into place. With the Roundel off, remember to clean and apply wax to the area covered by the Roundel.
