This "i" badge is on my 05 wrx, installed by the previous owner:

What is this i badge? I can tell its from Japan, but what models does it come on there. Where can I find an original Subaru Badge, im not sure if I like this one. I've searched ebay and a few other websites, but I can't find just the original badge in the right size.

The "I" badge was originally used on WRXs and had a redish pink background. Aftermarket picked up on this and made this in different colors, I have seen red, blue, black yellow and green.

Don't they just stick on with some adhesive? Warm it up with a blow dryer and peel it off. The original is likely under it.

You guys that don't want them - well, you only have to say....(get ready).......(hold your breath)......(WAIT FOR IT!)......

I thought maybe it was an STI only thing (STi) i need to go look at it some more at first glance it seems like the old one had to be removed, it seems raised. Anyone know where to get the OEM one?

If someone here doesn't want to trade you (you might try posting the the marketplace/whatever forum) - then post it over at www.nasioc.com - I'm sure someone would trade you and pay postage both ways so it shouldn't cosyt you.

good luck

This badge on your car is OEM Subaru for the wrx, but will fit other models too.
