I got a Porsche Panamera...

Badge that is. Got the Panamera's PORSCHE chrome badge to put on my Boxster. Lol

Put it on today, and it looks even better in person, but here are the pics. Would've taken better pics, but it was 20F degrees out today!

Hope you enjoy the pics...

Haha.. Thanks guys. Actually, placement of the individual letters was not that difficult. Once you figure out the dead center spot to place the S (the middle letter), all you have to do then is to place half inch tape to the right and left of the S, and then place the next letter to each side and so on. Just make sure you get a long strip of painters tape to mark the bottom line where the letters will run on top of.

The factory letters are done top notch, and already have the 3M tape below them, so all you have to do is mark the right place to put them, and you're good to go.

That's really cool looking! It's too bad it is doesn't curve with the shape of the car, but none-the-less it looks fantastic.

Thx. Actually, as they are individual letters, you can place them in any configuration/curvature you choose. However, I am far too lazy to try to measure out the perfect curve...especially when it's 20F outside, so I did it the easy way.

So where'd you buy it and how much was it?

I think I just might put that on my car. Maybe.

I got mine from Ric at Suncoast Porsche. I think he is offering it for around $40 right now on their website. At the time, I know I picked up the only one he had just gotten in, but I know he ordered more.

So what's it like taking off the old emblem and putting hte new on? The long tail on the B of my original factory emblem is coming off due to snagging it with a wash mitt, and I'm not sure how to fix it.

Taking off old emblem is easy. Just use a strip of dental floss and run it below the badge, and it will come right off. The hard part is trying to get that same badge back on because what's used is a thin layer of 3M double sided foam emblem tape. You can buy that at the autoparts store, but the difficult part is reapplying it to the badge and cutting it to size. I think that's why dealers just sell the new replacements for around $30 bucks.

Putting the PORSCHE badge on was pretty simple even though they were all individual letters:
1) Put a long strip of painters tape along the length of the trunklid where you want the letters to sit right above.
2) Measure where the dead center is to apply the middle letter (S)
3) Apply half inch strips of tape (the spacing I wanted between each letter) to the left and right of the S, and then affix the next letter to the right and left until finished.

So the dental floss works to get the old tape off, not just the emblem?

Nope. The floss gets the badge off. Use something like Goo Gone to remove the remnants of the adhesive.
