Okay, so Cadillac would not allow Pontiac to N* badge the GXP... I got these 2005 Caddie N* badges off eBay... I got three of them. My question to other GXP owners, or anyone else for that matter, is where do you think they would look best?

I thought about taking the small V8 off of the trunk lid and replacing with one of these... but how about next to or below the GXP badges on the doors? Any ideas?

are they close to the same size as the GXP badge on the door. I think that they would look cool under the GXP

or maybe on the front fender like the 3800V6 badge that the GP'* have?

Well, I would post pics of them if I could figure it out. I can't even get a sig pic to post anymore. Not sure if something here is different or Car Domain is gooned up...

Anyhow, they are 4.5 inches long and 3/4 inches high. The N* emblem is on one end and V8 over Northstar on the other end. You can see a picture of one if you go to my Car Domain page.

I was thinking below the GXP as well... not sure you could put them on the front fender unless you heated them up to conform to the curve of the front fender... I'd be interested in hearing suggestions on that because that was my first thought. I'm definitely thinking the one on the trunk should be replaced...

That looks really good without the striping IMO, but the striping will make it look A LOT better. Its amazing how you can transform the appearance of a car with different pinstriping. Can't wait to see the pics of it with the striping.

If the 3rd N* Emblem is still not on the car I think removing the V* emblem from the rear and installing the N* emblem instead. Then pull up in front of a the Caddy Headquarters so that those guy'* make a call to Pontiac only to find -someone else is rebadging (and NO it'* NOT a RICER badge).
Looks awesome IMO. The way it should have been from the factory.
