Interested In Custom BMW Roundels?




Are you on a search for new BMW roundel emblems? Do you want to replace the stock blue and white emblem to match your car’s paint color or interior trim? Your BMW has several different badges and emblems which can all be changed to reflect your own taste. Changing the stock roundel with a different version is an effective way to restyle your BMW without spending an arm and a leg to do so.

People identify with symbols and communicate non-verbally with symbols as well, so when you bought your BMW you bought a symbol to articulate to people, non-verbally, about your status and style. But why not take that a step further?

The stock blue and white design is  classic, but many people would rather add a custom touch to their car. Replacing or covering up the blue and white BMW emblem with a different color or design will not reduce its luxury status, but will actually serve to differentiate your car from other BMWs on the road.

These replacement roundels are available in many colors and patterns, with black and white carbon fiber being one of the more popular designs among BMW enthusiasts.


Red Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel Roundel IT NOW


For those of you who have already purchased a new roundel, replacing your old roundel is actually very easy to do. You can use a flat-head screwdriver to pry it off the hood, but you must be careful when working with the screwdriver in order to avoid scratching the paint. Many people wrap the screwdriver with a small piece of cloth or slide a credit card underneath the roundel to protect the paint. Others have had success by removing the emblem using fishing line or dental floss (folded twice). Whichever method you use, be sure to do it carefully to avoid scratching the paint.

Once it’s popped off, clean off the debris in the area where the emblem is attached. Then, place the new roundel on, and make sure it does not wobble. Once it is perfectly centered, lock it down.


The BMW roundel on the steering wheel is the easiest to modify. Simply clean the roundel area with some alcohol, wipe away dirt and debris, and once the area is dry, apply the roundel wedges. Make sure that the roundel wedges are perfectly straight when you stick them down, then press firmly. A perfect application will ensure that no one will know that its an overlay.

If your BMW logo is sacred to you why not go ahead replace them with versions that reflect your own style and personality? Though the stock roundels are classic,  don’t forget that it’s your car, and that you can do whatever you want with it. It may be an easy and inexpensive mod, but it’s one of the most noticeable upgrades you can make to your BMW.
