Dude, those are the decals that just looks like stock mk2 gti's. They are kind of raised.
Can your cousin get more??

Just got them on the car . They may fade and get scratched but Im sure they are not coming off. Had to reposition the "I" while I was working on it and it would not budge without even having any pressure applied to it .

Now that I had a chance to step back ......I may have to move it 3" to the right ....................dang . Measure three times cut once got me :(

I bought mine from the dealer who sourced them from Japan. I think I paid almost $200 for what Scotty is showing.

Well I finally talked to my cousin . He can make more if needed . For what you see on my Mk1 GTi it would be $15 + postage. If there is interest he can also make entire set up , as in - Suzuki Swift 1.3 GTi . I would have to find out what would that cost .
After looking what JV&S has in his pics I think I will ask him to make a grey border little wider . I think it would look little better that way and more authentic .

Yeah, it's funny that when you order the NEW OEM decals from Suzuki it has a disclaimer concerning the Red "i". It briefly explains why it can't be used. Suzuki apologizes for the inconvenience to it's customers.

Each set is $40 +$5 for shipping anywhere in US.

I just realized there is no transfer vinyl on them so I have to get some first because there is no way to apply them without it. I was going to put one on my car, no can do, without transfer vinyl :roll:
