Have you looked here:

http://www.rufautocentre.com/

They have a parts brochure on this site. They might not make one. Have you seen 'em?

The emblem can be had for $2,799.00 when you buy the kevlar-carbon hood that it's attached to. They also probably pop up on eBay, resulting in a mad scramble of bidding.

This is reminiscent of the Dinan tuning phenomenon on BMWs where folks put the emblems on and skip the $10,000 + tuning part. After you spend a certain amount of money with Dinan, they finally relinquish the trunk emblem, RUF may have a similar program.

You know, I replaced my peeling Boxster logo on the trunk with a TURBO S emblem. And, well, I think the car is faster now! I haven't had it dyno'd - but I definitely think it's faster. Should add about $50,000 to my resale....

I don't know why no one else has thought of this........

What a waste of cash, if your going to do it just get the Carrera GT set up for the trunk lid. Everyone who owns a Porsche will think you are nuts and those who don't won't know WTF it means, which is also true of swapping for a RUF badge.

Wow that was rude. You think i dont know what RUF is? im sorry i forgot that you knew everything about me.... Placing the Ruf emblem on my hood is no different that someone placing turbo rims on there boxster, Its purely for the look.

I disliked my rear deck led boxster s emblem and switch to Ruf instead. After I became a ruf addict. I bought 18 ruf wheels, pedals, mats, exhaust etc, etc. to each its own.

Do you have a picture of your rear trunk lid and exhuast?
