Need your opinion

I just bought 2 of the 2.3 emblems for a Mazda3. Now I don't know where to put them. My choices are driver's and passenger's side doors, above the side moldings. Or replace the "focus" emblem on the back hatch with it. What do you guys think? Does anyone have any pics at either of those spots? I think if I put them on the two doors I'm still going to take off the back focus emblem cause it's kind of cheesy looking. When taking off that emblem do I need to worry about ruining the paint and what is the best method of removing it? By the looks of it, it's just on there with adhesive. Thanks for the help.

I like the idea of the front quarter location, either just rear of the fender or like you said on the door above the molding.

I think I saw a pic once with the 2.3 emblem on the right side of the hatch, kinda the mirrored location of the fOCUS emblem. It was pretty sharp.

I like the idea of the front fender or door placement. May I ask where did you find the emblems ? Ebay ? Dealer ? Other source ? Thanks, and post up some pics when you get things done !

Got them from a dealer, $11 each. I think I decided I'm going to take off the two rear emblems (Focus, ZX3) to make the hatch clean, and put the 2.3 emblems on the doors. I'll get try to get pics up either tomorrow or Saturday.

Hey DarkHorse, thanks for the info. I had no real clue how much they'd run. Look forward to the pics, too !
