Are the Hood/Trunk Roundels same as E90?

I was going to buy a set of black/white hood/trunk/steering wheel roundels to match the theme that I have on my car. Does anyone know if they are the same in terms of the sizes and pins location(hood/trunk)?

Use vinyl overlays... They are laser cut perfect fit and you can change them if you don't like leaving the stock emblems intact. I got 2 sets for $20 shipped and they come with overlays for hood:trunk: wheels:steering wheel

Currently, I am using overlays but I screwed up on the hood and steering wheel. Knowing that I might screw up again, I decided that I should replace the roundels instead.

Just called a local BMW dealership and I have confirmation that the hood roundel on the F30 is different from the E90 but the trunk is the same.

I might be late, but for archival purposes: Indeed, the front roundel doesn't have the two back pins like they used to. Instead, the pins are part of the bumper and engage in "holes" at the back of the roundel, plus it is now taped where it used to be held by friction.
