Question Where do I stick it?...a Vios badge that is.

OK, I bought a Vios badge from Garm at MicroImage. I've gone so far as to remove the Yaris badge from the right rear of the trunk. My Yaris...errr...Vios is the 'S' model so below where the Yaris badge was is a red S. Over on the far left is a Toyota badge. I've searched through the forums and looked at pictures. I've seen KaoticLasagne's and he has a Vios badge on the left where my Toyota badge is. The right side of the trunk lid is "clean". He has something down to the right of license plate. I couldn't quite tell what from the picture.

So.....
#1 Should I remove the Toyota badge and place the Vios one there? Leaving the 'S' badge over on the right by itself?
#2 Should I just replace the Yaris badge <already gone> with the Vios one in the same place? (And leave the 'S' badge below it.)
#3 Should I go with #1 and remove the 'S' badge too for a cleaner look?
#4 Other ideas?

I like the 'S' badge, but maybe it's too busy with all the badges back there. Thanks for your suggestions!

Vioses (Viii?) here have the Vios emblem on the left side (where you had the toyota one originally) and the trim badge on the right, so the S would not be out of place (but maybe a bit too low?) if you wanted an OEM look.

That's what I'm leaning towards, Vios on the left, replacing the Toyota emblem. Yeah, the S would be a bit low, I agree. I think I will remove the Toyota emblem next. I may need to order a new S emblem and place it on the same horizontal line as the Vios emblem. My wife drives an 09' Corolla S and it says Corolla on the left and the S emblem is on the right side all by itself.

On a different, but related note. My wife and I were watching Bangkok Dangerous with Nicolas Cage last night and there was a scene where Nicolas Cage's character was putting a bad guy in the trunk of a black car and it was a VIOS!!! We had to back up the DVD and stop it on that frame, but it was definately a Vios. The Vios emblem was on the right side with a VVT-i emblem on the left. Pretty cool!

Yaris-Me - thanks for the feedback!

YarisSedan - thanks, I'm still toying with color matching that chrome trim piece over the license plate like you've done. Since I bought the Vios emblem, it's going on!
