Default Fender Emblem

I have a 2013 C6 and I found a 60th anniversary fender emblem I would like to install. In your opinion, where should I install it on the front fender? Should I just install it on one front fender or both?
I appreciate your input.

WHEN an individual would install them on a 2013 the majority placed them on the vents or gills on the fenders............ BOTH sides..........


YOUR car, YOUR choice of what would make you happy..............

I'd say put one on each side of the fender if you are going to do it. Does your front and rear emblem already have the "60 Years" on it?

I can't remember if only the Anniversary editions got those emblems or if all 2013 got them?

Yes, my front and rear emblem has 60th anniversary. Where on the fender would you suggest?

Thank you Slowstang305 for your examples. I thought the emblem would break up all the red. Which example would you choose? Would you add the emblem?

I am probably in the minority here as well, but I put these same emblems on my car. I installed them in the factory location on the fenders. Typically I'm more in the camp of removing emblems, but I agree the fender just needs something there. I did black mine out to give it more of an understated look, but the oem chrome look would like nice on yours.

I personally wouldn't do it, but definitely put it on both fenders if you plan to do so. I would DEFINITELY remove that door molding though. One of the worst parts of the C5 IMO.

Not a problem, just thought I would give you a visual before you do it. I'm not sure if I would do it or not, but I did have LS3 decals on my last C6 and have installed supercharged decals on my current C6. Its a love hate thing but remember they are removable. If you feel in a month you no longer like them it will be a 5 minute job to take them off. Slap them on

I do agree that the door guards should come off. The car looks so much cleaner without them. I believe they are just taped on there.

I'm personally not a fan of emblems that didn't come on the car from the factory.. and I'm DEFINITELY not a fan of that C5 style BSM (body side molding).

The other option is to install (1) emblem on the rear bumper, much like the ZR1 location.

or

purchase the 60 anniversary emblems for the front and rear

I definitely think the second option would be much better for the OP! Good idea.

Since you're asking I'd say towards the top; I think Slowstang305 did a great job in posting what each would look like.

I really like the black halo, but I'm biased and think all the coupes should have black halos.

Another suggestion would be if you could find a decal of the emblem instead of the plastic piece. Makes it easier to clean around.

The emblem is chrome metal, not plastic
