Black and White Roundels

I swear... I have been searching high and low to find something as simple as replacement painted badges. The only success I have had is with MFEST which cost over 100$ and is not worth it since its paint/vinyl.

I talked to Jlevi and they only offer vinyl now because BMW NA got on there case about resell of roundels or something...

So I am wondering if anyone know where I can get front and MORE importantly rear fitting roundels in a monochrome black and white finish? I'm hoping that someone from out of US has some options because I don't think we do here in the states.

Since no one has black e82 roundels, can anyone confirm that if I cut the tabs off the e93 (maybe e92?) roundels it will fit the style of the e82 truck?

82mm for the hood and 73mm for the trunk.. is it right?

Is the trunk concave? It looks flat which would not fit our trunk. The issue with our roundel is the shape more than the size. Only one that fits is a E93 vert with the prongs cut off and 3M tape. At least that's what my research has come up with. Also, I haven't seen them up for sale lately anywhere.

I guess I will have to get a black for the front, and buy vinyl for the rear...

I just used black vinyl to cover up the blue on my e82's trunk. The wheel and hood emblems I got off ebay, but couldn't find a trunk one anywhere! (Hence the vinyl).

I don't have roundels because someone stole them. This is the big reason
I wanted to buy painted ones.
