Any good black badges?

Does anybody make good black hood,trunk and wheel emblems?
The only ones I could find were made in China, the hood and trunk emblems faded within 3 months then the black of the rear emblem fell off the trunk emblem while the back stayed on the car and both rear wheel center caps fell off

I'd like to know the same. I looked for quality and thought I found them... The hood badge popped off in under a month... So I put my carbon fiber ones back on.

I'd love to find them!

Get the vinyl overlays. Best bang for your buck and look the best.

"something nice" is a Genuine BMW badge. They didn't make them in black. The stickers hold up fine and also look fine. It's not my cup of tea but that's your best bet. They are easily removable, and they give you plenty of extras in the sticker sets I've seen.
