Gents,

i'm talking to a website out in the US that has the red 'S' with the cut out for a C4S - they work out at around £105 a time plus P&P. Just thinking of ordering a load at one time if anyone else is interested - that way we pay just one set of postage.

Anyone else interested...??

Don't have an actual final price yet and this does not include import taxes.

Thoughts...??

Anyone else interested...??

I paid about £45 for mine from the states on eBay , so I'd say they are way overpriced at £105

These are the ones from Bumperplugs - this is the only place i've found that does them so far and i think the paint them individually.


Budflicker - have you got a link please m8 and i'm struggling to find anywhere else that supplies them. Bumperplugs only do them to order... Agreed - £45 is a FAR better price...PC

1998 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Tue May 31, 2016 3:39 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I would talk to China, there must be no more than about $5 worth of materials used.

A red S would suit my car but its not a Carrera 4 so no good to me.

Does anyone know why the Carrera 2 Tip is classed as an S but not got the S bits or the badge?

How about this and a Dremel?

Osh,
Mate bumper plugs quality is OE good, but they are expensive that's who did my acid green S and make sure you get one of there door lock covers in body colour at the same time lol. If your coming to Simply Porsche at BEAULIEU on Sunday you can see the quality for yourself. there are other cheaper options but I can't speak on quality.

Here's a cheaper on on Ebay.com.

Interesting. I like the idea of a blue "S" emblem for my C4s... (polar silver with metropole interior)

Has anyone seen one?

Bumper plugs in the states would make you one , I think it would look cool .
they painted my acid green S and can do anything you want. 17 stage paint process ends up looking better than OE Thumb

and if you wanted a matching blue bonnet crest then the guy you want is porsche crests also in the states

This is the one that i got from the US. I messaged him and got the postage down to $18.50 and he marked the value to £15 and gift..

Worked out at £31.45 GBP delivered to the UK..

I have also spoken to a number of people who have painted them with great success and had i know the low cost of these badges from OPC this is probably the route i would have gone down.

You dont need to pay $100 !!! Surprised

Funny you are mentioning this because I contacted that seller yesterday asking about the postage cost and he came back saying he would only send it UPS so he won't post for any less..i think he is making money on that postage cost..

I think I will go down the route of painting mine!
