OMG Christmas came early!  Did you get your wheels refinished ? I didn't know you can buy a factory front emblem still

what color do I paint it. white or black.  I love black, but they are like an a__ hole. every body has one.  white is bad a__, and you don't see it very much. and both are hard to keep clean. dark blue is nice. but don't like it with the gold bird. any blue.
