    Do you mean 'shield'?

    You should have a Cavallino on the front grill, and to the left of the license plate, and "Mondial T" script to the right of the license plate. I believe that is all from the factory (excluding the PF script badges under both egg crate breathers on rear Q's)

    You can search around here but I believe the 1998 model year 550 and 355's were the first 'factory' shield cars

    Do whatever you think looks good, it's your car.

    I think this is correct. IIRC the F40 had them yrars earlier but thats a different matter.

    I'm not a fan of shields on any Ferrari except actual race cars. They're the insignia for the racing team and I think that's where they belong. That said I do think they look nice on some cars and ultimately I agree that your car is your car to do with what you please, especially if it's easily reversible.

    I do believe there are some good quality magnetic shields on the market that look much better than the stickers. Not sure where to find them but likely someone here has them.

    Agreed, personal choice. For me, I omit the shields on both of my cars.
