If it looks tacky i'll say so

The thickness of the emblem looks really good on the fenders...but not so much on the rear end IMO.

I don't know...if you want a Z06 emblem on the back just get a license plate frame!

I saw a C5 Z06 in a parking lot here in Austin one time and it had 2 Z06 405HP emblems on the ***. It had a lot of other emblems all over the car also and it was some 50+ year old woman that got in to drive the car. I was just thinking how much attention do you really need to make the car look that crappy. My wife was with me and once we got of of hearing distance she said "why?"

I came in hoping to see a cute gal with a Z06 emblem on her rear.

You guys have disappointed me.

If you think Jacob's car looks 'tacky/ricer/etc', then you're IMO.

The center of the car needs a symmetrical badge. The Z badge is not symmetrical and looks out of place there. Is that an LED license plate as well????? Geez....I hope not...

Guess I'm then. 3 Z06 badges on one car is a bit over the top, or did he put one on the front bumper also?

To each their own, but I think it looked factory, IMO...

And BTW, no woodgrain or blingy-type here

Once upon a time I had an actual Integra Type-R. Three times I went out to the car after working out at the gym and found that some punk had pried the factory red Acura emblems off with a screwdriver. Of course, they messed up the nose and trunk each time they did it.

At one point I thought about buying a spare set and leaving them in a plastic bag on the antenna just to save the trip to the body shop.

At least now I know where one set ended up
