VIS CSL trunk Q's

So I just purchased a VIS vert trunk and the trunk roundel has two little sticks coming out of the back that slide into two holes on the OEM trunk. But the new trunk only has one hole at the top . So I was wondering if any of you guys have the trunk and what you did to solve this problem.

Thanks

And heres the hole on the back of the new trunk. (keep in mind the OEM trunk had 2 holes that lined up with the sticks on the back of the roundel)..

I think the OEM roundel is too big and you're supposed to use one from a Z4? I could be mistaken...however..

Double sided adhesive...the kind that's included with the OEM roundels. Just cut off both of the sticks.

If Jordan's fits nice and I see it person, I am most likely getting one. Might even get a hardtop. Lately I think hardtop verts look better than normal coupes.
