    Black Roundels

    I have to replace my faded/chipped roundels and I want black anyway.

    I figure I should ask for opinions on this or better options before ordering.

    The shipping is already a few bucks too high on this.

    Even the grey and white ones look alot better then these if you want to keep it darkish.
    OEM looks best though

    Very nice. I guess I'll just get these. But I'll wait another day. Maybe someone else can convince me otherwise by then.

    I went shopping for the CF black/silver ( or grey ) but These are more black and look good to me. I think they kind of lack character or something though Click here to enlarge
    No hurry. i should've bought these over a year ago.

    I have the sticker ones from Bimmian in black and silver dynamic carbon fiber on AW 135i. I decided I don't dig the silver, they have pics of white carbon fiber on their site but don't sell it so... I took the silver off and the black carbon with stock white looks great. They are stickers (at least the Bimmian ones) that you have to apply to each 1/4 of the roundel. As long as you clean well they stick very well. I had one start to peal but the kit came with enough to replace it. If you go the Bimmian route make sure to choose the pieces in the kit that are just slightly to large as they shrink a tiny bit in the heat.
    Never thought I would see the day...

    i had those for a while on the 335, eventually all corners peeled and just looked like crap, just my opinion though

    Yea..so far so good, I expect that will happen eventually. I cleaned the piss out of them before hand. They say they will replace any that peel to. Look good for now.

    I have black and white, they go well with my gunmetal VMRs. Unfortunately, the trunk emblem is original blue/white because they don't have a black/white one for the e93 trunk Click here to enlarge
