I just installed my scoops, and blacked out the logos. I'm sure RPI wouldn't mind free advertising, but I didn't want to alter the car's front face.

The reality is that unless you are kneeling in front of the car at the right angle, you really can't see the RPI lettering.

They look great. Car looks clean. I just installed mine too and left the rpi logos on. Being in such a hidden place I don't think anyone would even notice. I just drove at speed with them for the first time and it felt great. Little better throttle response and with the BMC filter the intake growl has increased slightly. I got to admit I have the bug now for dinan exhaust to help her breath even better.

I think he means 'chintzy' as in cheap, generic, devoid of value, etc.

personally I like the lettering, it scares others, they think you've got something BIG under the hood.

Very Nice Doc.
Mine looks exacly like that. I considered reinstaling the driver's side to move it in more so that its more symmetrical. But I don't think its very noticeable and probably not worth the hassle.
For those who havent installed theirs yet, I would do the passenger side first. There's very little adjustment possible on the passenger side. Then place the driver's side to match the passenger side.

I blacked out the logos - just a personal preference on all my aftermarket parts. You really can't see the scoops unless you look hard.

can you define "chincy"?
:eek::biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce:
Chincy could be defined as say, the Pope wearing 12 lbs of gold chains around his neck, exposed, and fancy cowboy boots also.....all with his Popeish garb on !!!!

How did you do this?

I agree with UFH and I too shall black out the lettering too if I ever get round to ordering the black ones.

Have decided to pay RPI a visit for CF removal after my 15 service (done nearly 8k now). I may get matte black kidney grills installed but need exact advice where to get them from. A search showed that my first choice of ----------- may not be such a good idea...

I got mine from Turner MOtorsports. Good quality and it came really fast. Only $99.00.

I just used a can of black enamel spray paint. I'm not too concerned with how the scoops look, since I'm trying to hide them. Since I have the luxury of driving my own as opposed to a sponsored car, I am not committed to advertizing my suppliers. I ditch the logos and go with the cleaner look. :blink:

You really haven't pulled the CFs yet? Do we have to ask Gustav to revoke your membership? Do yourself a favor and pull the CFs and get the BMCs and scoops. You will be so pissed that you waited this long. I am sure Eloy can leave the logo off on request.
