OEM M6 badge for aftermarket fender grill

Need help to find a pair of OEM chrome M6 fender grill. I know some members have the black grill with the chrome badge, it looks much better then all black for me! I went to dealer today, but they only sell the whole grill. Do you guys know where can I get them? Thank you in advance!!!

If you are very careful, you can pry the badge from it's seating. Be mindful that there is a glued and press-fitted tab. Thereafter, use an x-acto knife or Dremmel to cut or grind off the tab. From that point, simply glue it back on. I performed this in about 30 minutes from start to finish.
Good luck!

Some where on this board there is a detailed description on how to remove the whole piece, which is very easy. Basically you push in at the front and back of the grill piece and slide it backwards, with not too much effort. It goes back in by sliding it forward as you push in.

I made a mistake on the first post. I am sorry to made you confused. Actually, I was looking for the oem fender m6 Badges, not the whole grill. Anyway, Thank you for the reply!

I figured it would be much easier to replace the badge once the grill is off the car. If you all ready knew how to get it off, sorry my bad. When I purchased my matte black grills, they came with both silver and matching black badges. I chose the matte black. It is possible that I still have the silver ones, but I can't be sure, it has been a few years.

If I can find them, you can have them. I still have my original all silver ones, I think?? They are probably in the same place. I can check tonight. I think that I have enough posts to PM you if I find them.

Not enough posts to PM...

Unfortunately I didn't keep the silver badges. I still have my original silver grill, but those look to be one piece with the the grill abd badge; not glued on. I also replaced the Blue/Purple/Red stripes with White/Silver/Black, so sorry I don't think that is what you are looking for.
