When I first saw G35's with this I thought it was really cool. I'm talking about the badges that make the car look exactly like it is sold overseas. Skyline is quite a legacy to Nissan fans, so it's kind of cool to sport the name. However, I recently visited g35driver and noticed that everyone and their neighbor seemed to be putting these badges on. I haven't seen any on the road, but I guess it's common on the forums.

I like it. It looks tasteful.

It is comon on the forums, but i doubt you will run across many on the road.. i think we are a minority in the overall population..

Nissan sells around 30k Z cars each year and probably somewhere around the same G's. Just a guesstimate, but i bet there are over 250k of these cars on the road worldwide. We only have 9k members.

Also, you are going to have to explain what a skyline is to everyone that sees that badge.

I vote for badge removal

I too believe in de-badged.. but that only works with certain cars. For example, shaving "Civic" emblems makes sense, but you sure don't see many de-badged Ferrari's out there.

Re-badging is a neat concept too, but it can be costly. Not only are you re-badging the exterior items, but the interior usually presents the problem. Those parts (steering wheel, seats) are usually costly to re-badge. And it would look pretty hack if it said nissan on the outside and infiniti on the inside. Some things to consider.

I think they look awesome if you go exactly like the cars in japan, even the steering wheel. If you gonna make it Nissan take all the infiniti stuff off. Those infiniti badges are heavy, the Nissan ones are lightweight will make your car faster

I like um.

The first time I saw a G with the

<div align="center"> S K Y L I N E


across the back I was seriously looking at buying my Z and had to take pause and revisit the G just to be sure I was buying the right car. It had a few other understated mods as well but the badging seemed to be the cherry on the Sunday. In the end the Z still won but the G was a close second because of that car.
