tbh its a hard one. Personally because they are real, you have everyright to show it off.

You will have to tigerseal them on so good luck selling them

They just look aftermarket when they are smoothed.

haha tigerseal aint as hard as evryone thinks well itll hold ya spoilers and skirts on for a life time but to get it off just pull away and cut with stanley nife, then get a plastic scraper and take all bit chunks off the car and you can t cut the rest off, done it on my mates supra

and the ones that iv bort of ebay have been removed from someones car that was tigersealed on cos he told me thers a bit of old tigerseal on the back from when i removed them

and yeh ur right it will look aftermarket but i dnt really care about showin off if its genuine or not i just like showin off cos they look good lol

try some car trim double sided tape to put the badges on with. Agree it looks best with them.
