Black badges vs. silver badges

I purchased badges from http://sv-concepts.com/

Do you think I made the right choice in changing color from silver to black?

You tell me.

Stock silver...and then gloss black..

Are you going with a murdered out look with the car? If not then I think the silver looks better.

The black goes with the diffuser and the performance lip. I think it looks better. Are they matte black or glossy? Gloss would look best IMO

EDIT: They are glossy, im an r-tard

Gloss black looks more modern. Chrome makes me think 1970's, especially on a white car. It reminds me of my old Porsche 924.

I should. My car says M everywhere else on it. Why not put it on the back? Wouldn't be any different than the guys who put m3 bumpers on the front of their non m cars

Very nice! The black badge adds to the aesthetics of the car. You may also want to consider black Advans and spacers
