The wife and I were pulling into the parking lot of Burlington Coat Factory on the east side of Columbus, Ohio in the BB CSRT8. She notices a BB 300C SRT8 (or so she thought), I quickly pointed out the lack of Brembos, front and rear lips, 20" wheels etc,etc...So tell me this, I understand it is pure speculation, but why would anyone want to put an SRT8 badge on the the deck lid of a 300C? I mean, I know that there are some wannabe's out there but geesh! I just don't understand people sometimes. I am just looking for a conversation I guess, but it kind of blows my mind.
Mods: ESP mod, Diablosport Predator, and most recently, Stoptech Street Performance pads from Zeckhausen. They call me Nate.
I kept staring out the window of the store waiting to see him leave for an intercept of inquiry,but by the time I made it back to the car he and his lady friend were off while I was trying to flag them down, meanwhile shaking my head yes and pointing at my "real SRT8"! lol...I had a mind to take some fishing line off of my pole in the trunk when I saw the badge and cutting it from the trunk lid, but my better judgement took hand I would have been able to use that badge on the "real deal"!
I think its fine to put the front and rear lips on, exhaust, brembos, etc as long as you don't put the badge on your car. The SRT8 badge on a non-srt8 is where you cross the line (unless you have done the full srt8 conversion (engine, etc) to your car.
