Black M3 Emblem

So I'm trying to find a black M3 emblem and after searching on here, everywhere people mention to get them (IND, Jlevi), I can't find on their sites anymore.

I've found one from Kholaty http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e90-e92-m3-badge-black.html

And also Creative Motoring http://www.creativemotoring.com/Prod...ctCode=BM-0206

Anyone know which is better?

Also, would gloss or matte look better? I'll have the edition front and side grills too.

email IND and ask them to paint an OEM badge for you in gloss black. you need to specify you want OEM, because they also sell the replica black badges. Anything other than OEM is crap and will fade.

Mfest paints OEM badges as well. They can do the stripes in greyscale as well.

I called IND on the phone and ordered right then with the guy, they were very friendly and created a gloss black OEM m3 badge for me. It's excellent quality, looks great, very fair price.

I had a black one on the back, to complete my blacked out look. I actually took it back to stock as I thought it looked better with the chrome on the badge beside it.

I got a gloss black emblem from IND. The ///M stripes are a different tone than the stock badge. They match the stripes on the logos on the shift knob. Not sure if you guys have noticed but there seems to be two different color pallets for the stripes from the factory.

My original rear emblem had a light blue stripe. The shifter and several of the other logos have more of a teal stripe.

Anyway... just a heads up if you're anal about this kind of thing. I think it looks fine.
