Painting it will also lower your resale value.

Definitely do it... get it done glossy black!

I've had no regrets getting mine done, and it looks great!

My friend is thinking of doing it to her white 335i when she saw how good it looked on her friend's white C350. If I had a white car, I'd do it. On my silver 335i...no so much. White and arguably red are the only colors it looks good on.
