    Hi all,

    Looking for some opinions here...

    Considering changing the front, rear and alloy BMW badges from the standard ones to black and white?

    I have a black 318i (you will get pics in my profile album) What do you all think? Pointless mod? Would look stupid?

    Can't make my mind up

    Look forward to hearing from you all

    Thanks matey. I think I just might.

    I have been checking out a couple of sites that tell you how to get the front badge of and replace it etc.

    Not sure about the rear though? Is it the same system with the two pins?

    Thanks for all help/advice

    Yes, 2 pin as well. Use a plastic trim removal tool, old credit card, or similar
