Be honest ppl..

Let me know what you think of this. I am not a huge fan of the C4 emblems so i was thinking about putting the C6 emblems on the Vette. I do in fact love my C4 but dislike the emblems) Before I get flamed and in my self defense, the C6 logo is just the Corvette emblem updated, it doesn't scream C6 Corvette, it says I'm a Corvette! (It's not like I'm going to be putting on a Z06 or ZR1 emblem...) What do you guys think? I Photoshopped a few pics of my car with the C6 emblems. I removed the "Corvette" on the back and the C4 fuel cap door emblem. Went with the C6 look. Your opinions please! And this car is not even close to original so don't play the originality card. haha

I like the C4 emblem better also. Besides, the C6 emblem wouldn't fit in the recess in the new hood.

I can say i wasn't too sure about the front emblem but the rear I do kinda like. I will NOT mix emblems either so rest assured that this car most likely will keep it's original badges. (Well replaced original badges) haha Even though it's still a Corvette emblem I feel like it's still badging the car what its not.

Nah, keep it original, kind of downgrades its originality, and doesn't have the "poser" look.

I like the C2 emblems with cross flags & BB fender emblems.
But they dont belong on a C4.
If you like the C6 emblems, install them. Its your Vette.

I have C6 owners doing a double take when I ride by in my C4.
They wave and give me a thumbs up.
Pretty sure they are not looking at the C4 emblem

I do like the C6 emblems but i'm just not sure I like them on the C4. Like I said I do like the back look but I won't use both emblems and I don't like the C6 nose emblem all that much so I'm pretty sure I will end up just buying a new C4 emblem for the front. I deff don't want to look like a poser kid! No thank you, too many of those around where I am.

The one in the back doesn't look bad the one on the front doesn't work for me at all. I say just replace the C4's with new ones.

If you want to put something C6 on your car put an LS in there

I say if you like the way the C6 emblems look, use 'em! No one looks at the car more than you. Might as well make it the best it can possibly be in your eyes.

IMO the front doesent fit the car. The rear might work but I would move it up on the fuel lid and keep the "corvette" script on the rear. But hey that is my opinion, I dont own the car, you do. Do what you like and enjoy the car for what it is. If others dont like it that is their problem. Just my .02

I'm not a fan of the C4 emblem either. That being said, I personally wouldn't swap out the C4 emblems for the C6. And with that being said, it's not to say that the C6 emblem doesn't work on the C4. And like others have said, the back emblem looks ok, but the front doesn't seem to work. And with that being said, I think the back emblem should go on the gas tank lid. And I think that's all I have to say.
