    Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Eric at Bumperplugs did a great job on some custom logos. Carrera 4 in seal grey and S in guards red. Stock logos in next post for comparison

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Stock logo and no aerokit.

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    that looks freakin awesome. care to share the price you paid?

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    US $130 shipped. www.bumperplugs.com

    Thanks

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    cool. and how hard was it to remove your old logo and install the new one??

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Wonderful car... I'm however a bit conservative so I preffer the stock badge and don't see the point to modify .. But as a side-note I don't like any aftermarket mods and e.g. coloured rims are the worst thing I know of so don't take my feedback to personal

    But the most important is that you're pleased with it.. that's what really matters

    Enjoy the 4S !!

    Easy. Hair-dryer to loosen them up. Dental floss to get them out. You can get any combination you want. Here's a black Turbo logo Eric did for me awhile back for my old car.

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Yea,--but where did you get the twin DRYING RACK on top?

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Lookin great... the red matches the red of the brake lights... really great. On the other hand (second thought :P) it reminds me of all those Audi RS's and BMW "" M3.18" we have driving here... but stricktly aesthetically: lookin GOOD!

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Looks great!!

    But, CLEAN THOSE EXHAUST TIPS!!! And it's a PSE, so the chrome is way easier to shine up than the stainless steel regular tips!!

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Niiiiice those little touches. I love them.

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    woo!! very nice, the S stand out so much, that's what the p car should looks like right out of factory!!
    NWturbo-i live in vancouver too, what shop did you go to for installing the areo kit. i'm looking for a good shop to do some paint job

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Thanks all for the comments. And yes, I need to clean those PSE tips

    To: Spooky9394
    I put the factory aerokit on at Korva World Class Collision - they are "better" than No. 1 Collission.

    If you are in Vancouver, and want to see the aerokit in person, shoot me a PM

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Nice emblem!

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Hi NWturbo,

    I would love to see your car one day at one of the local PCA event.

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Very nice

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    I like the add-on... It would have been an interesting marketing concept for Porsche to reserve the "old" red "S" (or any red "S" for that matter) for the 997s with the X-51 power package to differentiate it from the normal "S".

    Although only Porschephiles would understand... Personally, I may debadge and keep everyone guessing.

    hope that doesn't sound too garbled...

    Nice look

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    i love the emblem ,it give a nice touch to the appearance

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    thanks NWturbo, I went to no.1 collision today coz it's closer to home, and they quoted me 2500cnd for installing the areo kit, does that sound right. I would definitely call up Korva for a quote too.

    Sounds like a VW TDi to me! The old 1.9L engine was available with 90, 100, 105, 110, 115, 130 and 150 HP during its life. It was a connoisseur's game to find out the exact version the way the 'TDi' emblem was painted (the more red letters the more powerful engine).

    This kind of little games does not fit a Porsche IMHO. I for one always debadge.

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Red looks nice but it reminds me too much of the S' on Acura RSX and Toyota Corollas

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    Korva charged me $1500 CAD to do it, including painting the side skirts. No.1 at $2500 CAD is too much IMO.

    Also, buying the aerokit from MCL Porsche will cost close to $10,000CAD. You can find the aerokit on ebay for much less. I bought mine from Brandywine Porsche for US $4000

    Ebay is awesome. For my old 996TT, the aerokit I put on was also purchased from ebay for half the cost of the dealer price.

    Re: Custom "Carrera 4S" emblem

    I quite like the 997's that have deleted Carrera etc from the tail and have used a simple "911" script(in italics). Have seen several on the web and one on the road here in Dubai, but don't know where they got them............anyone know ?

    Try Bumperplugs.com Click "Order", then "Click here to start shopping", and scroll down, they have silver for $49 and black for $17.95

    Porsche also used the script for 40th Anniversary 996s...but that one had "40th Anniversary" (or something in German) engraved in an underline...
