I want to get the matte black 135i badge for my car, but I know my re-applying skills are terrible, so I'm not sure if I want to risk it.
Take two pices of painters tape line the top piece up directly above the 135i and do the same with a bottom piece then with a pen make a small mark on the left and right side of each number on the top piece of tape and the bottom pice. Then when you remove the old one u have the top and bottom tape to line up exactly where it was and the left and right side marks with the pen to keep the spacing equal. That's how I did it with my other car and always was in the same spot every time. I got black chrome badging 135i for my car. I like the matte as well but something is sexy about black chrome like on the some white Lexuses (or Lexi?) Black with just a hint of shimmer underneath.
