BMW emblem

Good or bad idea to change the BMW emblems from their original colors of blue and white? Is it cool to modify everything or should some things just be left alone? I changed mine to black and white today, and although it looks really cool I can't decide if it's better to stick to the stock colors that really represent BMW.

-100. Looks tacky, IMO.

yea, it was just a sticker to cover the blue, so I figured I'd stick it on there to see how it looks. Kinda neat at first, but I'm definitely going to peel it back off.
