Default *subtle* turbo badge.

Anyone have good examples of some nice, subtle badging to tell the ricer behind you that you'll outrun him? The Porsche emblem is a bit big.. [/CR]

A VW "turbo" beetle badge.

It looks like a smaller version of the Porsche turbo badge.

A friend of mine has the FSI turbo badge on his '02 Passat turbo and each of the letters is about as tall as a quarter, if even that tall. Very subtle!

Here's a picture of the engine cover to give you an idea of what the lettering looks like, however for the badge they're flat instead of rounded:

How about your very own MIATATURBO.NET decal? I seem to recall hearing that they were available to very special people. Ask. Maybe you are special, too.

Got it off ebay, it's from a south american Jetta/"Bora". The Supra turbo badge is almost the same font as the Miata badge, but I couldn't find any cheap ones.

RDX badge is perfect!

sixshooter - I have a bunch of those but I'm considering using them underhood, possibly a special treatment involving the valve cover.

I've got it!

How's that? It even looks like it should be on the visor with the airbag decal.

Any badge is too conspicuous. I debadged completely and run MT.net stickers on the quarter windows.
