I would like it more in the deck lid on a corner because it is exactly the same one as the one on the caliper and they are right next to each other, maybe if it was a different size. Thanks for the idea! I have four brembo decals laying around will put one on the back

I personally don't like it. I thought it would be an interesting topic though. I'm not a fan of brand recognition like this, unless there are sponsors involved.

Doesn't bother me since it's small. On the front quarter it's kind of redundant IMHO--the caliper is right there. I know over on the Brembo50 site they do have a faux gas cap cover with the Brembo logo if you want to go that way.

I personally don't like it. It looks good with just the 5.0 badge

I say leave it off. Its looks tacky under the 5.0 badge plus kinda draw the attention away from it IMO. But like most said Its your ride so do whatever the hell you want. If you like it keep it!

Personally I like to debadge cars, but I do think I'll keep the 5.0 badges because let's not lie here, I bought a 2011 over a 2012 for that sexy 5.0L

Doesn't look bad, i personally would not put a sticker directly under the 5.0 emblem I did a Lil shop recognition for the shop that installed my drivetrain on my car.

I'm all for it if you like it, so do whatever you like. It's different and so small that most won't give it much attention.

Personally I wouldn't do it to my own 5.0, but that just isn't my kind of thing to do, doesn't mean it looks bad. I'm more about no badges at all, let them wonder what it is, or assume its a v6 until it smokes them.

Subtle enough to be 100% personal preference.

My car came with the dealer's "Roush package" (springs, exhaust, shifter, CAI, and some other stuff) and included the Roush window banner and faux gas cap emblem.

I've contemplated taking them off, but I paid for them. They look cool ... but some people may think I am trying to pass it off as a "real" Roush car.

That said, I wish they were not there and may take them off some day.

I'd have put it on a rear window corner or something, or the toolbox, but just my .02 though.

Does not look BAD to me, but I would not. There are few things I openly sponsor without being paid lol, it has to be pretty darn amazing.

If I was getting free parts from a company, I would gladly do a sticker like that.

Brembo calls tomorrow and sends me all new brakes for free, their sticker is going on my car!
