Was never a fan - but done right they *can* look good.

Flank shields - according to legend - once represented a motorsport heritage, that disappeared once they realised they could make an extra tick-box on the option sheet for easy money.

Ferrari at least emboss theirs, the Lambo guys just buy a sticker. :p

Not much money to be made out of the Lambo shield stickers.  They only cost a few bucks.  AFAIK, they are aftermarket.  I've never seen them on a new showroom car.  Certainly they aren't offered as a factory option.  They look pretty cheap but they are easily removed.


The pearl orange is stunning in bright sunlight but looks less impressive on a dark day or under showroom lights.

i agree. :thumbsup: ferrari seems to have got it right. they look great on the F430. as you said they emboss theirs. but also that bit of yellow on the badge looks nice on a red car.
