At the autoshow I spent some time at the front of the car inspecting the Bowtie. The hard plastic mold of the bowtie has a inlay of plastic that covers the gold part/section. It is indeed 2 pieces. A needle or something sharp narrow and pointy will remove that inner section. You can paint it or possibly put something below the plastic before reinstalling that center section to it regular form.
I'm getting a Yellow car and Mine is going to be black.
I'm also sure soon or later aftermarket will do something but until then this will work and look good if done right. I have seen this done with another type emblem just be careful when taking apart.
