"H" Emblem question

I want to change the stock "H" emblems on the back and grill of my Red 00 AV6 Coupe to red and white emblems. I see them being sold all over the place so my question is are these emblems just a standard size or do I have to look for something special. Also how easy is it to take the old emblems off and put the new ones on?

That are all standardized but suck. Fitment isnt the best and since they are standardized they will only work on cars with a real flat surface and they are too big in some cases.

Just take off your emblem and spray it red or white then get some colored decal sheet(whatever color you want) and use it as the background color. Works much better and looks better too.

yea, if you have a sedan, you just take the bumper off real quick, and turn a phillips head a few times and youre set.

maybe try some colored spray tint too if you want a different color emblem, but still want the shiney chromish kinda look.

I have a coupe also. The white emblem on yours looks great, which is exactly what I want to do with putting the red emblems they sell on mine. So I really have to take the bumper off just to get to the emblem?
