Hi All.

Anyone know a UK supplier for bimmian style gloss black emblems (Like Hotcoupe has on his 335d) ?

Cheers

Dave

No luck on that...

If I wasn't clear I mean the 335d text rather than the emblem (I'd refer to the latter as a roundel)

Cheers

Their shipping to UK is obscene!

20 dollars for the item.
28 dollars to ship it
12 for customs to inspect it
4 dollars additional they'll ad on.

It will cost me worst case scenario 45 for 4 small pieces of plastic. Totally ridiculous IMHO... Hong Kong companies on ebay manage to ship stuff like this for about 3 quid so I don't understand it at all..

Even if I don't get stung by customs it's 31 with exchange...

I totally agree.

Perhaps it might be worth doing a group buy. I would suspect they could ship 20 badges for the same price as 1.

There must be a niche market here - I'm utterly shit at painting but I have a friend who can use a rattle can and make it look good every time.

How hard would it be to buy the standard silver emblems from BMW and paint them gloss black, then sell them at 100% markup? That would still be cheaper than the $50 to have them imported.

I imagine it would be a piece of piss to spray standard badging with a matt-black rattle can.
