Default Saturn windshield banner decals, does any one have one?

I thought this might look decent on my car(99 sl2), but I want to see what one looks likes first, I don't exactly want it to look out of place or ricey.....just a sporty accent.

Okay, just no hard feelings. I mean, I don't mind a Saturn decal somewhere on the car, or maybe a swap to Black Badges (I've done that myself even), but something that goes on the windshield just makes me cringe.

Personally, I think the flames/tribal thingies are what make it so out of place.

L4?

And windshield stickers of the car brand make me think of the 80s, since that's the last time they were actually popular. The car already says Saturn 4 times on the outside. 'Course I'm not generally a sticker guy anyway.

L4 means the cars engine is mounted longitudinally, which is not the case for the saturn OR those hondas, modded out.

The engine is mounted transversely in your car

Really? I found that while researching the engine, the way I understood it l4 was the generic name for the sohc and the dohc but ll0 was the name of the dohc.

Now I know....besides they don't make decals like that so I'm not gonna put any on my car.

LK0 was the 1991-1994 SOHC, L24 was the 1995-2002 SOHC and LL0 is the 1991-2002 DOHC.

And the generic term for the type of engine is an I4. Not L4.

As long as the lettering isn't huge, I don't think it would look too bad. I agree those flames or tribal things or whatever at the end are the worse part. I think that design needs the square saturn logo at the other end to balance it out.

If I did buy that decal, I would have to cut off the flames, or whatever those are.

Restating what your car is across the windshield is dumb, tacky and ricey.

This... and I think an

LL0
DOHC

sticker on the side would be tacky too. I always laugh when I see a non-si civic driving around and the owner put i-vtec/SOHC on the side.

It's funny because I think it was the 1st Gen Sx2's had "Twin Cam" slapped on the back of the cars.

And I don't think I would put LL0 on my car...NOBODY knows what LL0 stands for. DOHC is fine (people know what DOHC stands for), I personally don't see anything wrong with that, as long as it isn't blaring it out in some oversized font or gaudy color.

Yeah, the first gen sedans had it on the reflector, and the early first gen scs had them on the reflector. The wagons had them on the hatch.

When I SOHC to DOHC swapped my car, I put the lettering from a junkyard wagon on my car. But it looks stock, and it actually came off a Saturn.

Seeing the people who try to imitate the ivtec stickers though are kinda ridiculous, whether its using the same font or same location etc.

Default Re: Saturn windshield banner decals, does any one have one?

Bout 10 years ago, i did put one of those banners across my windshield. I really think it's stupid, like is it suppose to be there so the driver remembers what kind of car he's driving? Anyways, i had an 89 escort, i put the gt grill and spoiler on it, and the day i drove through a carshow with it and had some kids yell " nice Mustang" i decided it wasnt so stupid on mine. These kids were probably 16, not like they shouldn't know what a rustang should look like, but the 89 scort and foxbody eafly 90s have a very similar look, and with the way my car looked it got mistaken.

Now for the saturn banner..ive got a ricer saturn and think its stupid to put that on the windshield. I did put an oversized pink vinyl saturn emblem on my rear window, the rear bodykit doesnt say saturn so i did that.
