WITH-WITHOUT Emblem??

Rear lid has been painted cause a little scratch, they had to remove emblem. I dont know if to stick it again or not. I am in doubt. I am a purist and I will suffer without emblem.
What would you do?


WITH EMBLEM



WITHOUT EMBLEM

Emblem

Unless you can live without a rear license plate and keep THAT emblem...I would replace! I also am a purist and am keeping my '97 stock. Nice car BTW.

I ordered my 987S without the Boxster S logo. Delete Model Designation (code 498- $0 no charge!).

My wife asked me why I would do this. She said people won't know it is an "S".

I told her I know it is an "S" and that's all that matters to me!

I say keep it off for a while and see how you like it(looks, waxing, cleaning, etc...) and to atleast let the paint cure before you put the emblem back on.

I say stay stealthy and let everyone wonder what you're driving. That's what I do. I am emblem free

I'm a non-emblem fellow myself. It makes drying and waxing the car easier in that one area. More non-S people have it removed then S folk. I like bmussatti's school of thought.

Since you said that you will suffer without emblem then I think you should have the emblem on Either way it looks nice though.

I have mine on because I'd like to keep it original if I can. I agree with tgtran, I'd say drive it for a while without emblem and if you can't get used to it, put the emblem up

You can order the car from the factory with or without the emblem. So, either way, I still think it is "original". True, guys (and gals)??

finger prints

I personally prefer no emblem. But once i got the car and realize i have to push on the trunk lid to close the trunk because of its hydraulic support, I left the badge on because that's where i push, to prevent fingerprints on the lid.
