Default Yes or No on this fender emblem >

I am installing a supercharger on my 2011 GS.

While I am not really into stuff like add-on stripes and badges .... I am thinking this fender emblem might look good right above the black colored 'Grand Sport' front fender emblem on the car.

Ok ... No Good ? ?





The Grand Sport fender emblem on the car:

Iíve had my blower on for over 14 years and would never consider that but it is your car.

I say, use small piece of two sided tape to temporarily affix one to one side and see if you like it, if you do go for it .. it's your car and do what you like

No. You already have one badge there with the GS logo.

I got the idea of a fender badge from this photo.

Of course, this GS has two fender badges above the Grand Sport badge .... My idea would have just one badge above the Grand Sport badge.

That’s totally distracting.
edit...those badges match the vertical door thingy.

I'm thinking about getting a fender badge made up - VA5. It'll be different, unique, and "emblematic" of my build......

IMO, that does not work at all.

I say do what pleases you. Imagine the ridicule towards me if posted on here that I put these vintage emblems on my 07. Oops.
