I bought the same Turbo badge he has, and that's the only place on the rear of the car it will sit flat. I wanted to put the badge under where it says "Civic" but that part of the back is so rounded, the flat badge won't sit there right, leaving it readily removed by the first car wash. I'm totally bummed it won't sit flat on the car, I bought a red one and a black one over the winter, waiting until it was warm to check into choosing which one to put on my car, only to find out it won't sit flat where I wanted to put it. I debated on putting it where he put his, but it looked weird to me on my car.
Can't say for sure this is his reasoning, but it would be my guess.

Hi guys. RCTMA is basically on point with the reasoning. Beside the fact that i kinda wanted it to be just as much the focal point as the Honda emblem itself as i am pretty proud that this Civic has a turbo, and i that i own it. I tried other places but most of the other places just looked either out of place or pointless to even have it slapped on (kinda looked like an after thought).

Not a fan of the placement but if it was up to me and wanted to stick something around the designated emblem area, getting a stick that is a few shades darker/brighter than the OEM paint would be it, to create a bit of a ghosting effect, i'm just a fan of fine details like that ;)

Ohh okay that definitely makes sense to me now. Using a sticker would've looked a little cheap too, the emblem itself is really nice.

Good point.

I just wish there was some more options for placement of that badge, come to think about it, that was one of the better places.

Might take me some time to get used to.
