My Latest Arctic dilemma! Yes or no?

Ok alot of people debedge and I personally like the look, (cleaner and makes the rear end look wider). With a bunch of searching I didn't find a single debadged Arctic, let alone one with blacklines. I did a little adjusting myself and I can't decide. The back looks REALLY plain without the badge, and to me I don't see the lines that you see in darker cars when they have been debadged so I can't decide? But maybe it would look better in person? Anyone?

I think I will do it when I get new wheels, I am really embarrassed by the 156's, I will be ready for a "stealthy" look, when I get different wheels!

I like it with the badge, it looks too plain without anything because the decklid is so high and wide.

On the flip side of your point, debadging (and blacklines) does make the rear wider and more substantial, imho.

debadge man! oh...and from the rear...i will ditto my prior comment (in the other thread) about getting CF roundels...i think that will tie into your black/blue-ish silver theme...better than the OEM roundels...the OEM roundel has a deeper blue that contrast/is out of place with your scheme

and i almost NEVER recommend CF roundels...but in your case....consider yourself special!

I am very proud of my 325i, there a ALOT of people in the world who will never ever get a chance to ever drive a 3. It has nothing to do with being a 325, it has to do with style.
