Autobot Emblem question

I was thinking of getting 2 emblems for my car, but am unsure of the proper size. Ive seen some that look small but I've also seen other's that are way to large.

What is a good size for the emblems? The link are the ones I was thinking of getting.

You obviously are the only person who can answer this, if some seem to big for you dont use them, if they seem to small, dont use them. Find one you think is right.

I bought the oem ones. They are expensive, but are the best looking ones IMO.

I purchased some of a similar style that are 3.75" x 3.75", which are somewhat larger than the OEM ones (I believe those are 3.25" x 3.25"). You can see how they size up in my signature. I'm not sure, but assume you are planning to put these on the fenders. If that is the case I would suggest something larger than the ones you provided the link to.

Another question is what color is you car? I found some colored emblems that I used on my engine cover that are available in 2" x 2" (on my cover) or 2.75" x 2.75" and are available in several colors. Its possible that you could get one in a color to compliment stripes or other accents on your car.

Yeah I wanna get them in under the Camaro emblem. I kinda figured the one's I linked would be on the small side. What are the oem ones, and what are those prices?

My car is solid black for now, wanna start adding things slow. And since these are the easiest i figured i would start here (then maybe cupholders).

Also FYI the OEM one's will run you around $90 for just one.

Here is a picture of the OEM emblem, which are the ones used for the official Transformer Edition cars.

Thanks guys. I think Ill get the set Chaotic posted as they look about the right size and color/s. The OEM ones look great, but I'll have to pass on those for now.
