  • Smoothing out the recess for the rear Roundel? Anyone done this before?

    Group,

    As you know my car is being rebuilt and one of the things is that the trunklid has very light damage and will be repainted.

    I was thinking of having the roundel removed and the recess filled. The shop will be doing some fiber repair on the lid so I thought it might look cool to have the trunk lid smoothed out with no badging at all.


    Anyone have pics of this? Anyone have opinions on this?

    My opinion...i dont like it...

    I wouldnt mind removing the M badges....but the roundel kind of works with the car...i think the roundels look good.

    I actaully took off my ///M badges front and rear, b/c i need new ones...i will be replacing the rear one for sure, but i think I'll leave the front one off...it looks cleaner.

      One of the cars I looked at while shopping had this done to it; doesnt look right. I didn't like it.

          I'd keep it. If nothing else it'll remind you of the cars BMW used to build.
