Emblem/Roundel Sizes (E83)

Hey guys,

my trunk emblem is flaking off and I'm looking to replace the hood/trunk emblems. I believe the hood and trunk roundels are different sizes, but it seems a lot of the places that sell these roundels list both at 82mm...

Can someone w/ some experience replacing these roundels chime in. If you can let me know the size of the hood and trunk roundels, that would be great.

Also, if anyone has any knowledge on how to take these emblems off - that would be great. Based on my research, it looks like i'll have to pry some plastic in there and just get the double-sided foam tape off. Just wanted to double check to make sure there aren't any screws that I need to take off from the inside.

Many thanks in advance for the help!

Mine were both 82mm the front is normal like all the other bimmers I have owned but the rear isn't just an emblem its like a large one piece silver thing.
I ended up taking the pegs off the back and then glueing it on top. It looks great
