Bmw Black Hood Trunk Emblem

Browsing the internet I found a lot of BMW black or carbon fiber roundels for the hood and trunk, I have read about quality issues , for example, chrome turning into a light gold color after a couple of weeks of use, and white is more like off white.

I need a good advice from someone that has changed the roundels to black or carbon fiber for the hood and trunk without any complaints regarding quality.

Any feedback will be appreciated!

A lot of folks just use the vinyl overlays...this way you can change the color as the mood hits you.

the overlays are a good way to go because they are inexpensive, and you get plenty so you can refresh them every few months if they fade.

Bought bonnet badge from this guy and did not fade/peel even in 2 years of UK weather! Have now bought a new set for my 50d too. Hood badge has the 2 legs/pins on and trunk badge is a 3m stickover version.

Drop him a line he does lots of different ones.

I used the 3M 1080 vinyl in CF black and CF white holds like a charm!

I just did the 3M 1080 CF vinyl overlays on the front, rear, rims, and steering wheel! Came out clean black CF with White CF! I'll post pics once I upload them.
