    Re: New emblem

    The ATS Coupe with new crest showing and press conference is Tuesday morning 10:30-10:55am because the Z06 is Monday

    Even though it looks like a Transformers emblem I like the direction they are going with it with out the wreath/laurel because the notch for clearance in the aluminum trim on the trunk of the CTS to fit the wreath looks like an after thought IMO

    Makes we want to remove the wreath from the trunk of the ATS and if available replace with the new. Does anyone know if there are any holes behind the wreath or if its just adhered?

    Already a head of you
    No holes in the trunk for the emblems so they must be stuck on with double sided tape.

    I can confirm that it's on with tape, very easy to remove.

    Weekend project, wreath is coming off. Has anyone removed the wreath from the one on the grill? Not sure how that would look with it being in the round molding.

    Here's a pic of the new emblem:

    Not too bad, but definitely a lot, lot better than the present garish emblem. Hopefully, I'll be able to get rid of the present one for the new one???

    I dont know what that'd look like without the wreath.. I think simply painted black makes a nice effect, if you pry it off somehow it might leave a weird gap

    I was going to remove the wreath from my grille but saw it was cut to fit and pressure fitted so I opted against it. That looks pretty good. I might try that with the rest of my plastidip.

    The front crest has two posts on the back of it that go through the grill, The wreath has two tabs one on each side at the top and one post in the middle of the bottom that goes through the grill.
    The entire round center piece that the crest and wreath are mounted to also comes out of the grill even though they are three separate parts, The center piece is included with the grill.
    The crest and wreath are both sold separately with different part #'s

    Re: New emblem

    Before you hurry to replace that emblem....this was done once before in 1970, when the Coupe and Sedan de Ville debut without it's then legendary V logo under the wreath. It was not really well received and faded into oblivion when the emblem was re-invented with the crest surrounding it. This "new" emblem could be fleeting.....

    I think the width to height ratio of the new one is too large for my taste. I personally like it closer to 1 like the present emblem. I, too, will keep mine.
