Mein Auto: 2015 BMW 320xi
BMW Emblem

Just leased a 2015 BMW 320xi with the black kidney grille. The black grille and gunmetal color of the car look sharp together, but it just doesn't look right with the classic blue and white BMW emblem.

I was looking to replace all 7 of emblems on the car (front, back, steering wheel, and 4 wheels) with the black and silver carbon fiber emblems that seem to sell real cheaply online.

Unfortunatly, the reviews I've read have been pretty bad stretching from difficulty getting old ones off to water seapage and discoloration in the new ones. Anybody know a way to do this the right way for looks and longevity, without totally screwing myself for my lease?

Since you are leasing, my opinion is to leave the emblems as is. My wife has the same color combo, and it looks great with the standard emblems IMO.

Maybe because I am Bavarian I always want to slap people over the head who change the colors. It's probably the same way Americans feel if someone just changed up the colors of an American flag somewhere.

Be sure to factor in the cost of returning the car to original condition when the lease is up.

If you know of someone who is really good at auto painting you could repaint all the metal logos.
