Colored BMW numbers...

I'd like to buy "335i" in a space grey color to match my car (instead of the chrome)...

WHERE CAN I GET THE SET FROM??

I can't find a website that sells it, or even a store that might sell them... maybe It's because I don't even know what to call the numbers on the back of the car...


But I'm sure a million people on this forum will know what I'm talking about and where to get it...

And NO I don't just want to take the numbers fully off the car.

It's called the car "badge" or "emblem". Hope that helps on your search, try eBay

Why dont you just debadge your car if you want a cleaner look?

edit: just saw you didn't want to take them off

Have you thought about black badges? They would look nice on SG

2007 335i  [3.45]
Only colors I've ever seen are fire red, gloss black, matte black or carbon fiber. I don't think you'll find paint matched ones.

I don't think paint matched numbers will look that great, to be honest. It will blend in too much. I used matte black on my jet black 335i, and it offered a good contrast. Matte black on sg would look pretty good, I think, or gloss would be fine.

At bimmerfest they were selling almost every color under the rainbow to match everyones car.... i think matte black might look a little weird... but i also dont want the numbers off because i dont want people mistaking my car for a 328i that would be a nightmare!

I feel ya on the 328i thing. Although by the same token, they might mistake you for an M3. Lol. Regardless, taking your numbers off don't you risk paint mismatch? That is what stopped me from doing it (and obviously people mistaking me for a peasant of course ).
