Anyone Replace 335i 328i to black?

I have the black X5 emblem on my X5 and I just removed the side emblems.
Anyone change out their emblems to black?
Thinking of either debadging it or replace it with a black 328i emblem.
In process of de-chroming the car. Hate anything chrome.
Any pics please post, thanks.

Personally, I went for the badge delete. On this particular model, I think it looks much better. It looks like they struggled with where to put the badge and have it look good. On my old E46 Convertible, the placement looked perfect and matched the lines of the car. This time, not so much.

Of course, I know you guys like it -- just offering another opinion. Also, according to my German sales guy, the badge delete is a big thing in Europe now (not why I deleted mine). Again, I just think the car looks so much more sleek and streamlined without it. I'm in marketing, advertising, design so I may have a particular visual bias.

Best to all!

I would like to do this. How tough is it to do this? Do you just paint it black or purchase black letters?
