Badging Numbers

I have a mineral white 335 with black gloss trim and black gloss kidneys. I have a carbon fiber performance spoiler on the rear.

Thinking about rebadging the car in either gloss black numbers, carbon fiber numbers, keep the silver, keep it debadged.

I ordered mine straight from BMW and had them painted gloss black. Took off the chrome ones (kept measurements as to exactly where they were before taking off) and stuck on the new ones after they were dry. Stuck really well, since they were like new from BMW.

My spoiler is gloss black though, not carbon fiber.

carbon or matte black, or plasti-dip if you want a short term or might want to revert it later (it's only like 8 bucks so i think its worth a shot since you can just take it right off if your not feelin it) and how you supposed to get it back in the right spot when you go to rebadge it? hahaa

If the emblems are not real CF, go with gloss black to match the rest of the trim.

Advice: buy some thin painters tape and tape around the existing numbers. You need to take some Goo Gone to get rid of the residue when you take the old ones off. Re-center the new numbers in the taped off boxes and you will have the exact same placement.

I went with gloss black and they match my trim and kidneys perfect!
