so what kind of stuff did you use? is there a DIY article about it? how do you think it'd look on a black bimmer? i'm thinking it might be too subtle...

I think no emblems look better (shaved) and I'd loose that dealer sticker too.

I used something called "VHT Spray Tint " you can easily buy it from Ebay. No real DIY, you just clean the emblems (I bought new ones), spray that stuff until you reach desired effect of shade, and one coat of clear (or more, depending on how it reacts and how patient you are)

Another thred along those lines is HERE

I am really not a big fan of shaved emblems, never really was. And as far as the dealer sticker goes, that's my dad's place so that's why it was on the car, lol


Oh, and almost forgot.... fyi that car is long sold

Hahaha I was sooo confused when I saw the title of this thread and then Rooz as the starter. I was thinking, "I swear he already did this."
