Just ordered a simple ‘911’ badge which is 35mm high and originally from a 993 (993.559.237.01.70C). This is to replace the Carrera badge on a 996.2.

Looking at the engine lid its quite curved in the vertical plane, and there doesnt seem an obvious place to stick it. I’ve seen lots of cars with the 911 badge so know its doable and just wondered where to place it. Not sure if the 996.1 engine lid is different?

Any photos and advice greatly appreciated. Hopefully I’ve got the right size!!

Regards

Ian

The 40th anniversary edition of the 996 was a Gen2 car and had the '911' badge as standard fitment.

Google Images will give you plenty of angles to view it from.

the positioning of the badges is slightly different on a 996.2 than it is on the 996.1

im on a work computer at the mo that doesnt allow me to see pics that are hosted from photobucket and others so cant tell which is the correct pic but heres a link to my little project thread which has pics of where the 996.1 badge should go

hope that helps Thumb

996Lee - thats an interesting and useful thread - reminds me I need to check out my fan resistors!

Had another look and think I’ll put it roughly where the Carrera badge is now. Immediately below the spoiler looks semi flat, then there is a hump, then semi flat again as it nears the edge of the panel.
