Unless you mean it was for trucks with the Z71 package and provided additional tacky evidence of such. In that case, I could see where that would work.

It is currently. I worked for GM decades ago. I am also not 100% sure it was actually 'Z71', but something like that. We had a few bs designations we gave out stickers for.

Probably something else then. My '04 Suburban has a Z71 package pretty much as described. I agree stickers sell though.

Or should the S209 owners say soon that the badge should belong only to them? :b

Things are evolving and IT IS NOT marketing as some said. They might not be as much as capable on straight speed, but they are capable on other areas to deserve the badge. Not a coincidence that a BRZ tS made a Car&Driver Lightning Lap time of 3:14.0 and a WRX STI '11 made a 3:13.80 time.

https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...-2011-feature/

I'm not at all saying these are not capable cars or don't DESERVE a badge. However I do think that it is not genuine to put a badge on a car that didn't come with it unless you have done a 1:1 upgrade to the version that matches the badge. You of course can do whatever makes you happy to your own car, I'm just farting out my own opinion. I like to think a badge means all the associated parts are on that car (with in reason and give or take minor cosmetic parts). Anything else is the equivalent of buying a 2 series BMW and slapping an M badge on.

Ok, got you. I wouldn't like that either. Personally, I don't have the STI badge or even the BRZ badge. It is very common here to de-badge your car.

I actually removed my FRS badge for a cleaner look. I think debadging can look really cool. Not all badges look good.

fwiw, i have the oem badges but no brz badge

my opinion: unless your VIN says brz tS, no STi badge for you (the jdm tS has STi badges from factory).
you can make your brz exactly like a tS... quicker than a tS. but the VIN # dont lie

Hmmm...I'd like to de-badge my BRZ as I recently put a tS rear badge but I don't know if debadging the two OEM rear logos is easy, can I use only blow-dryer and dental floss or do I need professional heatgun etc?

Why not try something different and try de-carring* the badge?

I am not sure how easy is to remove them, but it should not be that hard with a dental floss and a good blow-dryer. Personally, I switched to de-badge when I changed the rear trunk. The new one didn't have any badges.

I pulled them off with a plastic razor blade, more to get under an edge than to scrape them, and then used my finger nails to take off the adhesive.
