M badge tape

Hey guys, I need to re-position my M badge ............ body shop didn't quite get it right after a fender re-spray last year. Is the type of tape BMW used on the badge like the 3M white double sided foam stuff........ or like the 3M heavy duty double sided rubbery stuff. Thanks!

I used the thinnest 3M double sided tape I could find. I think it was clear. Sorry, threw the box away so I don't know exactly what it is.

I've heard that using RTV works really well. Clean the double stick tape out the cavity and put a small bead of RTV in there. I've never tried it, but I've seen other people that have used it and it stays on pretty good.

Use the grey rubber 3M tape.
Get it clean and dry, and make sure it is warm for a few hours.

I forgot I had a roll of thin 3M grey rubbery tape. I used it and it worked great. Thanks for the help guys!
