Just de-badge it completely for the cleanest look.

I think de-badge always look good. It gives the car some mystery. I think the M badges are worth leaving on because that's special but 335i is pretty much nothing. Very few people will see the 335i and think that it's anything special.

And when they get smoked by a 335i they'll definitely pay attention then.

Dual exhaust is usually a dead giveaway though


With that said I agree with Thenewrick. Debadge ftw

I didn't know de badging was so popular. I know dual exhaust is dead give away to another BMW owner. Non owners would be clueless lol. I'm leaning toward gloss.

Gloss. Have you found a source for those? I'm new to the forum and don't recognize the CM logo in your picture. Any installed pics?

Gloss. I have it debadged this moment, but just so I could paint and reapply. Looks good debadged, but it does feel like it needs something.

It's hardly going to show up. Get matte.

Any other color deserves gloss black.

What would you guys recommend on a sapphire metallic black 328i E90 4 door? I like the Matte look but haven't seen it on any car so asking for reco's.

I was thinking of going the de-badged route but then decided against it. I think the black letters would look much better and I am proud of my 328i that I have
