Debadge Boxster S?

What do you guys think debadge or not?

I love the clean look of a debadged boxster and that sleeper look when you pass by and people have no idea what kind of car just flew by! Makes a really appealing ass

Just hard to decide whether to debadge an S.



Another members debadged Boxster.

Do it. All it costs is a little of that dental floss you're not using anyway, and a little elbow grease to completely remove the residue. And it's reversible...you can just re-attach the emblems if you miss them.

I left mine off after my trunk lid was repainted. I like the smooth look better.

Yellow, I took mine off about 2 weeks ago. I like it off, the wife likes it on. Now the question for me...if I do replace it, what color. Titanium? Chrome? Hope the wife decides it looks better off.

Haha I agree, looks better off.

I want to debadge but my dad prefers it badged.
Oh well, most likely will debadge soon and if I don't like it I will rebadge.

Funny, Auf and Yellow we need our bumperettes painted. The smooth rear deck and color matched bumpers make for a newer look.

Tomorrow, I am putting the "P O R S C H E" badge from a new Cayman on mine. The original owner apparently took the de-badge option when choosing the Aerokit, but I figure if I'm driving a Porsche, I don't want people asking themselves the name of that cute little Toyota that just went by, because there's no badging on it.

I removed mine years ago. When I purchased my car, the lower part of the "B" was broke. I ordered a new badge, put it on and promptly broke the same spot while washing the car.

Enough. I removed the rest and have left it off ever since.

Mine just broke where the hook of the B, the bottom left, where it begins to curve up. I was washing the car. All of the badge is coming off soon. The S as well.

Hi Yellow.
Defiantly De-Badge, Did try just the 986 even that was too much



So it's like this now.



The Boxster has the most beautiful curved rear end of any car in the world, and Iím sorry silver-S only someone that doesnít know theyíre cars would think it was something else, and I donít care about them type of people they are not car lovers, I often find myself looking in the wing mirror not too see whatís behind me but just to look at the curves on the rear wing

It's a decal. Ebay

Porsche Boxster 986 S 3rd Brake Light Decal Overlay 97 98 99 00 01 02 03 04 | eBay

Was kinda funny - the seller asked for pics of his decals installed on cars so I sent him mine, and he used it on his auction. He might have asked first, but I didn't mind. I was just surprised to find a pic of my car on some guy's ebay auction.

Rebadge a Boxster S

My car has the Aerokit option, which comes with a new trunk lid and (optionally) no badging.

Yesterday, I added a P O R S C H E logo, in the style, of the 2014 Boxster/Cayman. I like it.

MarkT,
Do they send you all three options: PORSCHE, BOXSTER, BOXSTER S ?

Oh, I already ordered but didn't see a place to make a selection, so I assume they must all come.

Thanks
