If you have to ask, you should just get it wrapped so you can remove it if you change your mind.

Why not get it wrapped? Wrap comes in gloss black too... That would be the better route In my opinion. Incase you don't like it, just peel it off.

If you would have asked me 1-2 years ago i would have said hell yeah! I actually did it on my crimson e90.

Now that I notice everyone has the blacked out theme going on, I stay away. Then again if everyone is doing it its cause it looks damn good.

Just my 2cents. All up to you though. Also if you want the cheapest option is buy some quality gloss black vinyl on ebay and DIY. its really not that hard & not permanent which would be a big plus.
