    Thank god for plasti dip!!!! When I did this on my BMW I had know idea about this stuff, such a pain. This was simple, took 4 hours and didnt even have to remove the emblems. Awesome!! $5 Can of Plasti dip in matte black, $2 auto painters tape by 3M, $5 of painters rags, total mod cost $12!!!

    I was scared about my paint but after much research and just taking the plunge I did it, and it works. Here's a reference video:

    I used toothpicks. Wont scratch your paint, just poke little hole and peel, it will peel around the emblems, you'll be amazed.
