I've been warned against it, my dealer told me my car got a radar in the badge (or immediately behind it) so it would at least destroy the braking system and the cruise control.

If you dont have the radars: Go to a scrapyard and get the unchromed grill from the entrance version. Less hassle and better result.

You can also use PlastiDip.

That looks great with the contrasting fog surround and VXD badge.
