DONT BUY TO REPLACE FACTORY REAR EMBLEM! Otherwise its nice."
Okay, figured out how to "bend" it.

Not a great deal of bend but just enough to fit flush with the back of the hatch and doesn't "split" the front.

Anyone know if the holes need to be plugged before Evil M is applied? Evil M comes with a 3M adhesive back.

If you cut up the OEM M emblem there should still be prongs on the emblem. If the aftermarket piece you bought doesnt have prongs, no need to plug just stick it over the holes. (will be covered anyways)

Evil M front emblem has side slots too big for 2017. My grill got carved to make it fit (guess previous models came with taller holes). It does leave open holes from the top center of the Mazda OEM emblem. Will post a close up later.

This Ebay listing shows a couple pieces meant to fill in the holes meant for the top and bottom clips, did they not fit well? Looks great on the car so far!
