Would like yall's input on this

im going to be doing the rear center speaker grill with the z3 emblem on it..
no im going to be sanding it down to thin it alittle so its not so pronounced..
im not a fan of chrome and all my interior is solid black except for guage rings and alum shift know,
should i paint the "z3" badge Silver/alum, or Black( would give it kinda of a depth texture since the grill is black and not just yell out look at me
what are your opinions

Chrome against a black background would still be tasteful.
I'm not a fan of "excessive" chrome trim, but if it's subtle, it looks okay.

Happy New Year to ya' Max

Z3 emblem

I used the Z3 emblem, as is on the trunk. I had a hard time getting it to stick to the speaker grill. I decided to hot glue it and it worked out great.

I would go with a black one. Just my personal taste. If you want, I have the emblem I took off my car you can have. You could temporarily affix it to the grille and see how the chrome looks, then paint it black and compare.
