Is your car black? De-badged cars look good only in black for me.

I like being de-badged as there aren't many 1series here in CO...get some puzzled looks now and again.

Isn't there a little circular divot/recess in the body where the Roundels sit? So if you remove them, it would be obvious that it was missing?

Yes, it would be obvious and ugly. Leave the roundels. I saw this when my truck lid needed to be painted after a shingle from my roof fell onto it.

I'd leave the roundels. The car will look funny without them because the shape of the panels is designed with them in mind. The other badges are just sort of stuck on after the fact.

I'd say, based solely on the fact that you typed your UsEr nAmE lYk dIs, that you should keep the roundels, and maybe even add an autozone Twin Turbo badge.

replace your roundel with one of those stickers that looks like a bullet hole. That will make it look like someone shot off your badge. Totally gangsta.

If you delete them you will need to do some light body work to smooth out the spots where they were. If done RIGHT de-badging always looks cleaner IMO. BMW isnt paying you to advertise. get rid of them
