Black xDrive badges?

Blacking out everything I possibly can. I realize not many people are very fond of the emblem and that the totally murdered look isn't for everyone, but hey I thought it might be kind of cool since I wanna maintain that "I didn't take anything off, I just dipped the entire car into a vat of black paint look" lol. Anyone know where to get them? Or do I just have to go to paint... Any help would be much appreciated.

+1 for using Plasti Dip. I did my rear 335xi badge this way and it came out fantastic.

Awesome. Thanks, C.D. To everyone else suggesting plastidip: if you accidentally rubbed up against a plastidipped piece, would the coating not just rub right off?

Everything I've read indicates that its pretty durable.. but yes, if you pick at it with your fingernail, it will start to come off.
