Hiya folks.. I have a 06 S and the rear emblem had been taken off. I would like toput it back on. The dealer wants 100 bucks for the piece of plastic which is just silly. The new one does however have the adhesive already on the emblem so a simple peel and stick is all it takes. I have the old emblem but would have to dig all the old adhesive out of it. If i dig it out.. anysuggestions on what to use to get it back on the car?? Thanks...

Hi

Yes , my take on this is... leave it off. It looks alot better without it and it is far easier to wax the panel without it. People in Europe commonly delete these " insignias ". I ordered a 2006 C2S in Carrera White with the insignia deleted. Also , go to some of the online Porsche parts stores, they have insignias at a greatly reduced price. Another suggestions is place only the "S" in the center, the parts stores have various "S" insignias in black, silver ...whatever. I've tried to keep my C2S as clean and as singular as possible. Here in San Diego, I had not seen a new white Porsche in years, everyone has silver or black...Now after the GT3 came out in white, I am seeing a few more....oh well. It's not hard to pick your Porsche out in the parking lot anyway, alot of BMWs and Mercedes..but few Porsches.

Check with Eric at BumperPlugs - he can do any emblem you want.

Save yourself $$$ and cleaning time... leave it off.

Plus you get a better look.

The quad exhaust tips declare the S model.

A few years ago I broke my emblems when drying the car. I didn't know they were so flimsy. Anyway, I ordered both the Boxster and S online for about $10 and $5 each with adhesive. I think I got them from Performance Products but don't hold me to it. Good luck.

Hi,

I had to show my wife how to not bottom the front end. She

will tend to not drive it as much once she figures out what a

hassle it is to drive.
