    Red logo

    Hey! I just wanted to share what I did with mine for the side logos...I will probably do it again with a primer before paint. The paint chipped a little when I removed the tape. The results aren't so bad though. I used masking tape, scalpel, brush and red caliper paint. I had the seringe ready, but unfortunately could not get the side wing off (stripped the bottom screws) to try that mehod. Here's some pictures...


    I put on 9 pictures of the process in the album...let me know what you think !

    It involves opening the door, detaching the forward portion of the rockers & pulling it off carefully,It is just held in place by a couple of plastic pins.

    Anyone know where you can buy replacement ones of these (assuming through the dealer)? Looking to do the same thing and just in case of a screw up.

    RallySportDirect has them but they are black and say STI. They are also pricey 80 plus bucks! Dealer should be able to irder them but they too might be pricey.....

    looking to try to do this.
    so does the side emblem pop off or is it on there by an adhesive?
    Was thinking about getting
    New Genuine Subaru WRX Fender Emblem Set "WRX" 2011 Impreza WRX STI | eBay
    To play with.

    I know the special edition WRX has black emblems....do they say WRX instead of STI like the R205 ones do? Thinking I'll just order a set of those.

    Look up crux motor sports. They make vinyl inlays for those side badges in any color you like.
