I do appreciate all the opinions and we can modify the badging to make more people happy. That being said, I am a nuts and bolts kind of guy. What I mean by that is function is first with me. The product has to perform, has to be reliable and has to last. I not trying to be condescending here but I'm not a "neon lights under my car" kind of guy". The cars we build will go fast and be reliable. How do we achieve this? By testing and testing is racing, pushing the car to its limits to find your weak spots.

If you open the hood of a Supra at a car show the first question you here from everyone that walks up to the car is "what turbo is that". In a M3 you can't see it. So my thought is to let people know what they are looking at, it gives them a greater appreciation for what has been done to the car. That being said, if people want the manifold without the "M3 turbo" logo it can be ordered that way. My products will always have my logo on it but for the Carbon Intake I can definitely make the logo a lot smaller. How does that sound?

^^ The fact that you are allowing this for open discussion is a step in the right direction. We all know everyone has different tastes when it comes to visual aspects of our cars, but we can all agree on performance. Open discussion allows for a "Lets meet in the middle" approach, providing satisfaction to the customer and never effecting your true end goal, which is delivering a performance oriented design.

Guys, chillax. the CF one has stickers on it so that one is easy enough to de-badge. the chrome Mani looks laser inscribed or etched which is not removable.

The chrome or metal one is ok but Not better "Looking" than the HPF mani but that CARBON FIBER Wrapped mani is sex!

how much will these sell for?
Rico, you no read so well, lol

I dont mind logos but that thing is HUGE. The cf option looks pretty cool, but the overall shape is not better then hpf, i like smooth corners but thats just my opinion. I like how its not cast thou.

Saad i made this up quick just to show you what i think would look cleaner. I think something like that on the edge of the manifold and not to big lettering would work for your advertising while looking nice.
