Default Different SLE Badges

I was thinking about possibly replacing my SLE badges with some other ones, namely the toyota ones.

I think they would look good, especially on my dark colored car. I might even put one on the engine cover.

What do you guys think?

It'* your car, so you'd have to look at it everyday - or whenever you drive your B'ville.

But, I don't think they'd look bad at all. I say give it a shot. Even if they look awful, they're cheap!

Not so bad, They might look really cool. Just dont throw out the old ones in case you dont like it.

I havent decided yet. I wish i could see them on the car without buying them.

I just think they COULD look cool, especially to the non car experts who wont know they are toyota.

I like the stock badges on your car. I upgraded my '00 badges to your '03 badges and put a black overlay on them. I am very pleased with the results. Not a big fan of the Toyota badges.

just buy them, they're pretty cheap imo. If you don't like them you didn't take a big L on them anyway, I like the stock ones better myself too.

Yep, these overlays weren't available until recently since I sent my badges in as a template. I really prefer an overlay on the stock emblem. Here is a pic of mine to give you an idea...

I was just thinking out loud. I've thought about the overlays, but i dont really want to take them off the car, and then clear coat them, and put them back on.
