Special Edition Badging

Illustration for article titled Special Edition Badging

What special edition/trim level car has the most badging (numbers and location), letting the rest of the world know your car is "very special" and not for the unwashed masses?


I drive an STi, and while washing my car this week, tallied up the "STi" badges.

  • 3 per wheel (1 center cap, 2 wheel stamps)
  • 4 exterior decals (2 foglight covers, 2 doors)
  • 2 badges
  • 2 head rest stitching
  • 1 instrument cluster label
  • 1 intercooler label
  • 1 exhaust tip

Total: 23 STi badges, a bit ridiculous. That's 13 hp/sticker.
