Arrow Black side grills with Monochrome vs ///M traditional colors

I installed black side grills today and couldn't decide if i should go with the traditional M emblem or with the Monochrome one ... here are some pics for you so you can see and decide what you like better

PS. I got it from RennSpec as well ! Thank you Simon !
PS> I went with traditional M emblem


Monochrome









Traditional M-emblem

haha I have the same dilemma on my car!
I haven't installed the vents yet but I will probably install it this afternoon or tomorrow.
but as of the moment I think I would be going for the traditional M badge

i went with the monochrome myself. it seems to fit the theme i have going on my space grey m3. i have the black/silver CF roundels all around including the wheel caps, matte black kidney grilles and matte black side markers and smoked reflectors, so the monochrome looks really mean.

but for the alpine white, i'd probably go with the traditional colors as well.
