Default Need opinions on custom badging my car

I was thinking on placing this ones: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/GM-EX...32251045QQrdZ1 where the sides SLE used to be. Ive seen them on the new pontiacs & I kind of like them. What do you guys think?
The other one I want to use is this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PONTI...32954685QQrdZ1 There is a spot in the center of the center tail light pice, that I think it fits perfect.

Personally, I don't think that GM badge belongs anywhere on any car.

That Pontiac emblem looks decent. But as gumball mentioned, your car will look great without badges once its completed.

I know what you guys mean. & right now the only thing Im shure is that the stock badges arnt going back. But the badgless look its been done so mush. I want something else. I will keep on looking.
The other thing I was thinking is to find some cool vintage pontiac logos. But Im not shure it will look right.
I will keep on looking. & any idea is apreciated.

If you don't want the old badges on the car and don't want to go badgeless, I would maybe do something minor like just a couple Pontiac logos here and there, and not the Pontiac wording just the symbol. Just an idea

I like the GM mark of excellence badges, as long as you keep the number of them on the car down to two or three.

I've always been a fan of badges painted on or done with vinyl when tastefully done.
