Question Taking the blue out of the roundel?

I'm debadging my Mojave Brown 328ix when it arrives next week, with the goal of removing crass commercial branding.

I am also am considering toning down the blue/white roundel on the hood and trunk by either applying a black decal or replacing the entire roundel with a black/white substitute roundel. I'd like to make it brown/white to match the car's paint, but don't see that color available.

Is toning down the roundel considered déclassé to the cognoscenti, or is it a legitimate alternation?

If a change is not frowned upon, should a decal be used, or is replacing the entire ornament better looking and/or the much more permanent solution? Any links to companies with the best parts for such an operation?
