Stock Rear 328i Badge or Gloss Black

I have been debating if i should keep my regular chrome 328i emblems or replace them with the gloss black to match my front M Grills once my car comes in.

I like the black if you have a nice tint. Otherwise it looks a wee bit out of place.

Go with black. If you decide later that you don't like it, you can always remove them.

This may work for you...How about you plastidip your emblem to see if you like the color and if you like it, then you can splurge for the gloss black emblems?

I think the black looks cool on mineral white. The normal chrome digits are lost against the white car.

+1 I watched a youtube video of the plastidip product being used to plastidip an entire vehicle along with seeing how easy it was to remove....Quite impressive if someone did not want to take the time and effort to do a vinyl wrap or commit to painting one's vehicle.

Thanks guys. I will be ordering the Gloss Black ones. I have always seen m3 owners change theirs to black. I am matching it up to my 35% tint, black mirrors, black grilles, and black exhaust tips. I will also be getting the lower part of the rear bumper wrapped with black vinyl. Once the performance lip spoiler comes out, i will be adding that too.

I will be ordering from JleviSW. They are $20.

Chrome is classy. Black is too ghetto. In my opinion.

Ric, I think us who chose Sport like more black options/parts. Less or no chrome at all in our vehicles.
