    Guys, curious as to opinions on whether or not aftermarket Scuderia shields look appropriate or good on cars where they were not originally installed. Also, do you think it's best not to mess with perfection? Here's a pic, I'm trying to decide whether or not to install shields on my car. Which looks better?

    Do you think they look good on THOSE particular models? Do you have any pics you could post? What do you think of the pic I posted.. which looks better on a 328GTS? What kind are they?

    Continually debate this. i feel the shields break up the smooth curve/line of the fender visually. Some days i like 'em, usually i do not. Still debating, but in the end i think i'll go without.

    Less = More

    Its all personal preference. I think they look GREAT when done right.
    they scream FERRARI.
    So if you like them you will put them on.
    Or if other peoples opinions matter, then you will do what ever you think the coolest person on ferraichat says. Either way dosen't matter. Its a Ferrari. :)

    I hear you, I tend to agree they just say "hey look at me" and that's cool. Just interested in others takes from afar.

    Anyway, use the real shields and no stickers, please! :)
    When I speak for myself, I would only considering shields on Fcars that were originally available with them. It is quite a personal issue, but then I am a bit of a purist...

    They look good but some friends have said that it looks your putting Ferrari logo's all over the car: 3 on the sides (the wheel caps) two on front, two on back, if you count the Cavillinos.

    It does get a bit much if you think of it that way

    My friend at work was looking at my car from the back, doing exactly that - Counting all the horses / Ferrari logos. On the wheels, on the back, on the steering wheel, etc. He kept saying Ferrari, Ferrari, I get it already! lol

    So I hear what you're saying.

    I like the cars with or without the shields. :)

    My car is yellow so it strikes me as being a waste of time. You wouldn't see them unless you were looking for them. I get enough smiles and thumbs up as it is so it's obvious that they aren't something required to complete the look of the car, even if it was red or black.

    I have a buddy with a black TR. Hard to see the car even in the daylight. He put shields on it and it looks good. I'm sure all of the purists are having a heart attack though. It's 'just' a TR for god's sake!

    lol I hear yah! I figured I didn't have enough though, so I added the horse on my 328 center console. :)

    I always had a thing for those 308 interiors.
