I am switching my Hood and trunk BMW OEM roundels on my F10 for some black/white ones. As I was removing my hood roundel today , I came to find out the pins attached to the grommets aren't the only thing attached to the hood , but there is also some strong adhesive holding the roundel. This is only on the hood roundel, the trunk pops right off for it has no adhesive. My new black/white roundels have pins only and they are a different size than the wholes with grommets on the hood, I am going to shave off the pins but will have to tape or stick it on somehow. My question is : What kind of adhesive should I use in order to ensure my hood emblem won't fly off on a spirited driving day or come loose with water?? like always , thanks in advance for the help, I really appreciate it.

I don't understand why someone wants to do that.

White and blue is a very nice combo.

Guess what country has such a fine flag as below is shown...
