I purchased my polar Silver NB a month or so back and it doesn't have the Carrera script badge (black I gather for a C2?). I initially liked the look as was toying with the RS body kit. I am now not so sure about the body kit so may just retain the oem look. whats ones views boot script or not?

Out of interest what put you off the body kit? I went through the same thought process recently and, for now, decided against adding aero.

As for the rear badging, here are some ideas, if choose against bare:

Well firstly the cost itself, id only buy the real OEM RS kit via Carnewal, then there's paint and fitment to add on, then you'd look and think I need RS wheels or reps here, thus adding more cost.

I also started looking at various owner cars on line and the 993 itself can really be a personal beautiful thing with a simple slight drop of the springs a wheel change and the addition of the Turbo lower bumper. Again not cheap but im starting with Eibach springs and the turbo bumper before adding wheels. Wheels themselves is options a plenty.

Personally - go bare on an RS rep but use '911' - '993' or 'Carrera' on a standard car.

I went RS look, but kept all the standard bits if I wanted to swap back. Not wanted to yet, but I know I will in the future some time.
Like you say, with the correct drop they look damn good Thumb

I quite like the idea of "993". How come the Illuminati aren't apoplectic about this, but have a nervous breakdown if you discuss a non-Becker stereo? Odd lot Wink

I appreciate that I am out of my usual stomping ground, but I prefer it bare. It looks better, pure, simple. Add a label when people need to know what it is. Everybody knows it is a 911.

One black 993 Carreras script purchased.

Off to Gerts 4/5 for RSRs, motorsound air box, large exhaust tips and 200 cell cats.

I’ll open up another thread in a few weeks just to check that the forum search history and it’s recommendations re lowering springs is still up to date (I’m sure it’s a case or tried and tested rather than some new product arising but best to check).

Thanks all

Ian

So after taking in the varying advice I decided to revert to standard and sourced a black Carrera script, measured and with the use of masking tap got the badge plumb in the middle.

Been a very productive weekend in my 993 world.
