Default Re-badge/Re-styled emblem on AWD IS250

so i've always wanted to paint my AWD emblem red and finally made my way around to it today.
first impression debadging the AWD.. it didnt leave any debadging mark! and i've always wanted to rearrange the formation of "AWD IS 250"

so... i went for it... and this is what i came up with. i dont think anyone has done this yet.
let me know what you guys think of it.


sorry for the horrible pics. i just finished it a few hours ago and took the pictures with my cellphone camera.






Finished product:












New day-time pics:

thanks guys

eric, i went red because it matched my car & i've always liked the badge that stands out for certain model cars.. like the audi RS4, type-s, stuff like that. which they should've done for the awd! :P
