I know that I will be turboing my car eventually. What should I do with the badging once I do that? Vote above.

The only other thing I am doing to change the looks is to drop it 1.5", repaint it the same color, and put it on polished Virgos.

Go slow or don't go at all.

I was going to use a DIESEL badge on mine, until I came up with a non-North-American type of "244_DL" badge. I have two of each now. If I had an older 240, I'd try to find a "240 L" badge from Europe.

I have a 740 GLE badge on my 1990 740 turbo right now. The BOV tells people I am turbo when I want to.

I just got a '7' and two '0's" from s70 cars and a little 'T" from a T-5 . 700t will be my new badge. Now just to find out how to make the 16valve badge look good with it.....

there's a non turbo 244 around richmond with the badge "007" DL. it looks custom made, he may be an engineering student i think.

Or, paint the badging...

On my 745T, the PO had a shop repaint the tailgate, so they crazy glued [idiots] the emblems on. I simply painted them, looks great.

Here is a pic.

If you keep the whitewalls (even with the Virgos), keep the badges. Otherwise, ditch 'em or go for the uncommon badges like Towery said. ;-)

Hmmm....that might be kinda cool to go with obscure badges that people here in the states don't recognize. Hehehe. :)
