Default Whats missing?

I just realized that there is no "Lexus" emblem on the rear of the car. Weird. I looked at Lexus website and there are pics of ISC's with it and some pics without it.

Thoughts?

From my sales guy:

Starting in 2011 (and following Mercedes and BMW) Lexus stopped putting the "Lexus" emblem on the left rear of their cars.

Their thought, we are told, is that the center rear "L" logo is enough to properly identify the car and needs no further identification as to the make of the vehicle.

Interesting...

Yeah...I started that in another thread. I'm glad it isn't there. I wish the IS250C wasn't there either. I was going to remove it, but found out there are holes behind it.



I painted mine with Plasti-Dip and made them dark to match my trim.

I hate badges. I have always removed them from my cars.

Default Symmetry

My 2006 SC430 and 2010 RX350 both have the Lexus emblem and look just fine because of the balance, or symmetry of the rear with emblems on both sides. My 2013 CT200h, on the other hand, looks a bit off balance and asymmetrical due to the naked left side of the hatch. I'm going to either remove the CT200h emblem from the right side (if there are no holes) or place a Lexus emblem on the left side to balance out the look of the rear like the other two. Just my thoughts.

You have 3 VERY nice vehicles!



I wouldn't add a Lexus. I would remove the other if there are no holes. Make sure first. I'm sure glad I found out. I would have been FURIOUS if I had found holes and had to have the emblems put back on.

Thank you 13IS250C! Yes, I've verified there are no holes behind the CT200h on the right rear hatch. I'm with you on this one. Hair dryer and fishing line it is!

Are you sure yours has holes? I removed mine and there was not any holes on either the Lexus or the IS250 side.

I always used dental floss and WD-40 and tried to do it on a hot day. I can't tell you how many times I badged/debadged my Z28 I had for 17 years. I ended up putting Z/28 emblems on it from a first gen Camaro. Looked great.
