BMW Roundel Replacement from JleviSW

Why Replace Your BMW Roundel?
First and foremost, your BMW Roundel is front-and-center when you drive, and therefore often chips or dents from rocks and freeway debris. Once this happens, the entire roundel can easily peel, leaving the chrome beneath to shine in the sun. This is common, but can be frustrating, as it is so blatantly noticeable. An aftermarket logo can be more affordable than a replacement BMW emblem from the dealership, while still maintaining the original fit and finish of an OE part.

Furthermore, when customizing your BMW, you may have chosen to go with a carbon fiber theme, or to "blackout" your car's amber and red lights, creating a unique monochromatic look. For this reason, it may be appropriate to change the color of your BMW emblem. While some view this as adulterating a classic and prestigious crest, the vast majority see it as an intriguing metaphor; The modified BMW logo represents the aftermarket upgrades you've installed on your BMW.
