Manufacturers Logo On Parts

This subject came up recently in a thread. Personally I don't like it when a manufacturer places their logo on a part. If they do feel the need to place their logo on a part I prefer it is placed in about of the way place. However many feel a need to make it the first thing someone sees.
My feeling is manufacturers should make a statement with quality as opposed to letters.
So how do you feel about this?

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

On my car the exhaust was brand new when I bought it. The mufflers look like Flowmasters but have no type of identification at all which I wish they had. They also don't have the drone a Flowmaster has. I don't mind the logo on some parts but on engine parts like valve covers and air cleaner lids I would just rather see the clean look than like Edelbrock or Holley stamped into them. On my repro air cleaner lid I didn't even put a decal on it.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

I don't care either way most of the time. If it looks gawdy, goofy, or out of place, I go to something else.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

Hank,
You make a good point. The location of the part does make a difference. Readily visable parts should be clean. A muffler is a different thing but still could be done where is wouldn't affect the overall appearance.
A good example of tastefully done is A Scott Drake mirror that I have. Their logo is stamped on the underside of the mounting portion. So the mirror has to be removed to see it. The logo is there but in no way affects the appearance of the product.
In your engine bay pic there is an example of how it should be done. Looks like an Optima battery with a big old sticker front and center. Don't want it just remove the sticker. I'm pretty sure the could have easily molded their logo into the plastic case top.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

A lot of the auto manufacturers are putting their logo on different parts of new cars so that Aftermarket companies canít reproduce them and it is trademark infringement. My dad has run a body shop for 30 years and it has gotten worse and worse in thst aspect. New headlights are now like 1200-1800. A because of HID but also because ford will have ford stamped inside them.

To tell you the truth the sticker that was on the battery when I replaced it was messed up and I removed it but it looked to plain so I found the one that's on it (which is much smaller than the original) on Ebay.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

Like I said in the other post where this topic came up, I'm usualy ok with the logos but it depends on the logo itself, it's shape, size, color, etcÖ It has to be subtle. If it "blends in" with the rest of the stuff then yes, but if it "screams" to much, then no.

Have to agree with this somewhat. Some people like “Mickey Thompson” “Edelbrock” and even “Chevrolet” logos on parts.

But.... I prefer no logos and a clean stock look.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

With so many cheap imitation parts on the market, having a logo is becoming a form of protection. If you are buying a car, how can you tell if someone was bought the cheapest parts they could find in order to flip the car. You canít, receipts help, but they can get lost or faked in some cases. How many of you would knowingly buy the cheapest set of tubular control arms, $40 HEI distributor and coil, $34 high performance aluminum water pump or Pro Comp anything off of eBay, can you identify parts like that on sight when they are bolted onto an engine or installed on a car? If someone is going to use cheap parts that are visible, what are they using for parts that arenít.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

I was at a car show that someone had a Roush Mustang, (well I think it was a Roush...)
just walking around and looking in the car and open hood, I counted the word "Roush" 29 times! Between all 4 wheels, all 4 tail pipes, each hood hinge, "Roushcharged, or Roushified" whatever it was, the damned belts, 3 emblems from Roush, stickers, crap... I get it, it is a Roushized Mustang that has been through a Rou****izer, whatever.
But I like tiny identification logos stamped into parts so YOU know who made them, not as advertisement for the company for someone else to look at. Mufflers, sure, stick that side to the top if you can and don't like it. My 2018 Challenger has a Challenger logo IN the windshield down where the state inspection stickers go, Jeep is big on that stuff as well.

I don't mind the logos on aftermarket wheels but, beyond that, I rather not see them on parts.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

Like I said in the other thread and many will find this rediculous. I feel if companies want me to do their advertising for them by having their logo plastered on my car then they should pay me instead of the other way around.

Sure it wasn't a "Clone". I have the Challenger Logo on mine too. It looks kind of neat almost looks like it's etched into the glass.

Like the huge by large bowtie on the tailgate of a Chevy truck. Lose it GM, everyone knows what your hideous looking Silverado is.

Re: Manufacturers Logo On Parts

What I hate most is car dealers putting their name on the back of new cars....
I peel them off as soon as I get home .... My brother bought a new '57 Belair.
When he went to pick it up, the dealer had drilled 2 holes in the trunk lid and
bolted a pot metal dealer logo on it .... When he complained, they agreed to fill the holes,
and paint the lid .... He told them not to bother, and to order him another car ....
