Take it off and replace with grille stripe decals. Much more subtle and better looking. Generally accepted as a nice looking decal by the BMW community, particularly if your grille is black.

Comes in the German flag color as well.

I would not put it on my hood,
Not even if I could,
I would not put it on my fender,
Not even if I went on a bender,
I would not put them on my grills,
Even if I thought it would get me hot co-ed girls.
I do not like stickers on a car, not good when you leave a bar,
I do not like them mr kaneelliott,
it make the driver look like a silly idiot

but I do like green eggs and ham,
yes I did just say that Sam I Am

Take out the tow hook and decal and it will look a lot cleaner.

Agreed. IMHO, the larger "stripes" over the headlight look like something off a 1980's era crotch-rocket. No offense. I bought German flag color grill stripes, here are install pics on my 2002:

umm not sure what flag that is but it's not Germany



Germany is Gold/Red/Black.
Not Yellow/Black/RED
You have them out of order

Looks about as poser-ish as the tow hook and roundel.
