Guys, can somebody please explain to me what the various colored/patterned grill badges mean? The variants that I know of are:

black w/star pattern
pink w/star pattern
pink w/ "i"
pink w/ rabbit

Thanks!

The black with star pattern is the stock badge look.

All the other pink ones are STi badges, from various years of cars (I think).

black star = u.s. OEM stock
pink star = 22B
pink I = sti
rabbit = not a grill badge at all. it's acually a sticker that went on the SIDES of some of the sti's... someone decided a bit ago to place one in place of the OEM badge on the front grill.. so there you go! :D

there is also the green "I" badge... a variant of the Sti badge...

cheers

Isn't the rabbit the STi Legacy/Forester Symbol? :confused:

there are also the older badges, w/ the lines connecting the stars in pliedes (sp)

but i believe i've seen the sti forester w/ the rabbit...

there's also an official sti blue badge i think the rb5 had that one but don't quote me on it

nope... the true JDM legacies have an odd logo that looks like a 7up/7down...

like is on this GT-B


the foresters i've seen have the standard 6-star symbol...
even across the pond...

also

In addition to the black and pink star emblems, I've seen blue star emblems too.... would be a sedate choice, doesn't look vastly different from the stock black star badge, but is a touch different...

Also, the "i" is available in blue, too...


I still can't get over that the "Pink I" doesn't get more laughs than it does....
