Roundel Preferences

What color roundels do you guys prefer?
Oem, carbon fiber, black/white, etc.

OEM. It's a BMW, and in my opinion you just mock up the brand name by changing it out. Please don't do it, it's a childish mod IMHO.

Well normally I would go with OEM but with the mods I have the silver/black cf roundels flow with the car a hell of a lot better than the blue/white ones.

I want red and black in carbon fiber but can't for the life of me find them to fit my damn wheels...I was told a 2010+ E90 is the only rounded that would fit, only thing I have found are 2006-2012.

My wheels are LC 818

Yeah I think when it comes to your car, your roundels match perfectly! I think since i have a black car i might just go with oem or just keep mine black/white.. not sure yet though

Totally disagree. You go with whatever colour scheme you've created on your car.

+1. Do whatever you think would look good on your car. I have black and white roundels and I think it looks great.
