Poll: badges of ownership/lifestyle cool? dorky? etc.

A poll idea

"Subaru badges of ownership" like merit badges for your car.


I think they are subaru pieces of flair, like in the movie office space.

what do you all think?

Got them / Want them (free from subaru) = and think they are cool

Hate them = Love the movie Office Space, and will not put such things on my car.

Here if you want them:

They are kinda hokey. I got them though. Have yet to decide to put them on my cars. 3.0R badge goes on first, then I'll decide. Probably will put them on Walter -- seems appropriate there. It's Brownie that's TBD.

Love them but I won't put them on my current car. I did have them mailed out to me.
If I ever get a rallyx car, I'll do it then for the comedic value.

Even in Subaru rich PNW with yuppies with egos galore... they are very rare.

I got them, but I haven't put them on my car... I kinda like them, but seeing as how mine is my 1st Subaru, I'm a bit worried about looking like a n00b :-)

I would estimate that about 5% of the Subies I see on the road have them. One I saw yesterday was "4th Subaru" and that seemed somehow apropos tho'

I'm thinking I may put the badges on when I can get the 100K miles one.

I wouldn't mind one myself. But they won't send them north of the border.

You get: little bits of plastic to glue on your car

Subaru gets: an association between your VIN, hobbies & interests, mailing address and your email address that they can sell to data brokers.

I like the badges, I just don't think they're a good value in trade.

Subaru can not disclose anyone's personal information without that person's written permission. Besides, anyone who has purchased a new/used Subaru at a dealer has already provided SOA with their contact info.

I think they are cool, have them on a clear cover at the bottom of my license plate. I'd never put them on the paint.
