It appears to be a factory OEM badge but they certainly were not there when the car left the factory in Hethel.

I am pretty sure this is a car that was owned by a member of this Forum (and another before him) that was written off after an engine fire and auctioned at Copart. Looks like the dealer has tarted her up. The indignities this poor car suffers.

The bottom emblem 'styled by giugiaro' was a factory issue, not sure when they started issuing those but the '86, & '87 models had them. The other Lotus emblem was added on.

Please don't, the car is beautiful as it is. It says "Lotus" on the front and back. That's plenty

Just sayin.

Thanks for the sanity check sd. Although... I did a quick photoshop and damn it if part of me still doesn't want these.

Let me ask you this:

Ferrari scuderia shields - For or Against?

Yea, Ferrari does it and that's cool. On a Lotus it is just copying. So do we all want Buick holes now????

For, and for the shields on your Esprit. It looks good and not over the top.

I think the circular design of the Lotus emblem doesn't flow well with the lines of the car when put on the side of the car. Especially one that big.

Those stickers add 15HP EACH, right? (That's what I was told, anyhow.)

;)

You heard wrong. They don't add any horsepower, but because they are made of thin aluminum, they do add lightness.

Personally, I've done some pretty tasteless stuff to my cars over the years.
And the only person's criticism that mattered to me was my wife's.

However, the only person's approval you need is YOUR OWN. If YOU like it, frankly, that's all that matters.

Sure, your mods may be unliked by others and it may actually be ugly, but if it's what YOU want and you truly don't care what others think, I say go for it.

Just make sure you have a thick skin if the criticism is heavy - with the Internet, impersonal criticism can be very swift and pointed.

I have the union jack on the sides, where the Lambo has the shields. Done by the PO, but I find it quite OK...
