If i take the 328is off the back of my '98 will it be a different color than the rest of the car because of oxidation? and if so, how can i make it match the rest of the car?

It might be, but I doubt it will be noticeable. Couple things:

1) what color is the car? If it does oxidize it will more noticeable on darker colors. If you are white or silver I would say don't worry.

2) if it is off-color then you could probably use a clay bar, or some buffing compound, to get the colors to match a little closer.

I thought it was, but then I thought I had you confused with Cam. You should have no problems then as far as discoloration is concerned. Good luck!

Yeah, that should work with no problems. If you can try to heat up the area with a blow dryer. That will heat up the glue and make it much easier to remove. If not then work slowly and try not to hurt yourself.
