Yea man, change it back for sure. It definitely ruins the classiness of the car.

Well actually, the grill, fin, side mirrors, and door handles aren't bad. It's really just the fuel tank that ruins it.

This just confirms that our cars are getting way too cheap...ps: How could you have even thought painting the gas cap & door handles on a 7 Series BMW would look elegant or classy in any way, shape or form?
