Why would you put a Ruf badge on your car, unless it was really a Ruf? Would be like putting an M badge on a regular BMW. Tacky, no?

I've seen an R8 badge on an Audi A5. I had to chuckle.

I guess whoever buys it also wears a fake rolex and his gf/wife has enhancement in the chest area.

Not hating but that's usually how they roll...

It's an unnecessary modification IMO. Plus it hurts if they hit your face.

The problem I see with adding Ruf badges to a "non Ruf" Porsche are twofold,

1, needing to explain to car fanatics asking about your Ruf, that your boxster is not actually a genuine Ruf Boxster but a standard Boxster with Ruf badges bought from ebay.

2, Explaining to the person that asks you "what is a Ruf" that RUF Automobile GmbH is a German automobile manufacturer, and RUFs are built from unmarked Porsche bodies and chassis. When a chassis arrives, RUF builds their own independent work into the car. Because RUF installs many of their own-made parts, the company is recognized as a manufacturer by the German government and that is why they are badged as Ruf, but that yours is a standard Boxster with Ruf badges bought from ebay.

It could get a bit embarrassing.

Not a hater just not for me

hmm this coming from someone with modlist as "carrera lights" why if you dont have a carrera, why do people put GT3 bumpers on if you dont have a GT3.. you get my point...

also just to clear it up, RUF do a ruf conversion not just a full build.
they also do boxsters and offer a nice white 987.
they do manufacture cars but as above they still do a ruf conversion which has many performance upgrades,..

Putting a Ruf badge on a Porsche that has absolutely no Ruf mods is tacky. Most people here in the states don't even know what Ruf is, and personally, I think the standard Porsche badge looks much nicer anyway. Let me guess...you sell those badges?

Boxsterboy, what areyou talking about, not many people know what ruf is?

Also your assuming peoplewho buy a badge or put a badge on the car are not replacing an already damaged badge.
Not everyone takes life a seroius as yourself

Those Carrera Lightweight wheels on Ekam's ride were standard options on all 2003/2004 model yr Boxsters, so he's not posing by putting those wheels on. Putting a Ruf badge when you don't have any Ruf mods at all, is.

Nope, I'm not kidding. There's only one Ruf dealer in the USA. How do you expect all Porsche owners to know the name Ruf? And again, why would you put a Ruf badge on your car if you have no Ruf mods on it?

putting a different bumper on is much different than a RUF badge. Just because I think Ferrari are cool doesn't mean I should put a Ferrari badge on my hood. his lights are stock for a 03-04 model year and a GT3 STYLE bumper doesnt say you have a gt3 because it insn't the same. its just similar. moreover the bumpers and body parts can enhance the aerodynamics of a car. being in of itself a performance modification. whereas a RUF badge has only one purpose... to say that the vehicle attached to it is a RUF.

Grow up?

Its a simple question.
My point being people like to do this, some say its posing but so what, some people add M3 a ****************ting 325i so what, stop taking this so seroius.
Look the amount of times I have been in the OPC and someone asks for carrera brake pads yet when they have the reg checked its a boxster.
Again my point being does it really bother you that much if someone wants to put a badge on the back of there car and they get attention from other users?

as for bumpers, if porsche thought you needed a GT3 spoiler or whatever I am sure they would have added, look my point is, you cant have a complaint with people who do things to there car and then turn around and wack GT3 this and GT3 that on a bloody boxster.

Correction, there is no longer a single RUF dealer in the US. RAC has split ways with RUF.
