Red GTS emblem to silver
I own a silver GTS. The back GTS emblen is in red. Some smart ass decided to put a sticker on it loosely. When I took it off it peeled a part of the red paint on the "GTS" leaving a chrome silver underneath. Should I just take the red paint off leaving the chrome "GTS" or should I spot paint the "GTS" the same red? Talk about a frivolous complaint, I know. I'm just curious.

You can either be unique, and keep it chrome, or you can go to ebay and get a new one

I would rather not get a new one before I try the whole chrome effect. I was rather surprised that under the red paint there was chrome like it should've been there to begin with. Maybe I'll go chrome and also get a new one, just in case. I need to take pics, I know. Soon enough.

red looks gay on the GTS badge. especially the fact that it does not match with (IMO) CB, SP, Silver, Thundercloud Metallic Grey, Zephyr Blue.

it matches with black, white, and yellow assuming you are using red as a highlight to the car colors. spineyes grin
