Can I ask if the tips are originals you had Painted? I just had mine re-chromed but I spend all my time cleaning them 😂 They look good in black! What did it cost please?


They are my OEM tips ceramic coated wth a semi gloss layer over the top.
Cost was 70 +vat and return carriage - about 110-115 I think all in.

Others quoted 175 and 10 days turnaround. Decent guys to deal with

Love the theme, and as others said the tips look great.
Phil997 has a fantastic contact for bespoke bonnet crests.

I can't put a photo here (damn photobucket!). If youre on Facebook, search for "porschecrests.com". It's not a website.

They could make you a black and white one, which IMO would look nicer than sold black ?


Ive seen those. In USA I think
That was sort of my initial inspiration but then saw some ceramic Ines so decided I'd go that route and MAYBE paint myself.
There is a yellow and black one "on car" pic which is similar.


If you find you want to change the crest these are not the cheapest at £160 plus but the quality is great and he can do anything you want.my new one is the bottom pic

Like the choice - for me the silver would be white.
That's the intention if I'm brave enough to fulfill it with my touch up pen..

Well worth giving it a go and if it works great, if not at least there's another option. Thumb anything is better than the stock gold thing unless you like gold taps in your bathroom in which case you will enjoy keeping the 80s look with the gold crest lol

This is ceramic coated and I think tbh of the paint looks like it's going wrong it will be relatively easy to clean off if I catch it early...
Gonna give it a go.

I have been looking high and low for a gloss or satin black turbo badge for the rear - Like Easto says its only the 13cm version.

Dont think I fancy paying £100 for just a rear badge from an OPC just to spray it black anyway!

Would be good if someone could source a 18cm version

Agreed!
Plastidip worked quite well tbh!!
Although it's starting to come away now as I've tested different washing methods and it doesn't like a direct hose jet!
Easy to redo

I have been looking for months and months (7.25 inch OE version)...managed to get this one, and it was perfect.....



Trouble is recently I bought an aerokit rear deck and had to put an OE one on because I could not find another gloss black one......



Still on the hunt as painted ones for me don't look the same, but as already mentioned might go gloss magenta to match the red details...!!

I would either go black or remove all together, I have de-badged mine and much prefer it...... with most cars having turbos these days and only vans or Astras drawing attention to it with badges it was not for me. Those that know their cars know what it is without, those that don't will not care either way!

I like the badge though, and I'm proud of owning a 911 Turbo.

Fair enough. Yours looked great without IMO but I would colour code in Basalt in that case.

You posted loads of pics when you first fitted the Aero wing. Thought those were without a badge...... prob wrong though.

I agree with other's, the exhaust tips and shield is very in keeping, subtle and aesthetically effective.

The badge on the bonnet...not so sure. Maybe a white one with the Porsche inset colours would have been a better choice. I'm sure stood in front of the vehicle it's ok, or you'd have second thoughts and changed it.

But the personal touches are certainly in the right direction Thumb
