Default 08+ Carbon Fiber Emblems

I was looking for real carbon fiber logos to replace my OEM blue ovals and didn't want to go the cheap route of the vinyl overlay. Through my search I did find some nice JDM pieces made by K2 Gear for a whopping $250 before shipping and customs. To me that was a bit pricey for emblems.

While reading through another thread about carbon side badging I came across a company by the name of Dynamic Carbon Customs. The business front is Facebook based and everything is made to order. It took me about 6 weeks to receive the emblems from the time I placed the order and there was never a time where I wasn't able to get an update when I requested.

Install was straight forward, remove old emblem using some heat and then reinstall new carbon piece. Overall I am please with the fit and finish.

I'm about to receive some products from them. The communication and attention to detail have been absolutely wonderful. I think I was reading the same thread about carbon fiber side badges as the OP was and I came across them. I've received regular photo updates of my order. If I'm not mistaken, I asked them to make a piece they did not currently offer and they did.

Again, I have not yet received the finished product, but up to now and from the photos and service I've received and after talking with them, I'd highly recommend them.

Yes. Not sure what you want, but hit them up on Facebook and I am sure they can help.

Hit them up on Facebook for an exact number as pricing may vary, but as an idea I was under $100 for front and rear.

When I dealt with him his communication was spot on. I actually sent him my oem 2015 fender badges so he could make molds to facilitate him producing carbon ones. Try him on Facebook messenger if you can. Good luck!

I spoke to him recently about doing carbon fiber timing covers. He was prompt to respond. I would have no reservations with using him.

He does. I got some a while back, he was still in the learning process. I hope his are better now. The fit was not like the stock side badges, its a miracle that they stayed on. It was after 2 sets of his that I gave up. It was frustrating...sending him the OEM side badges and he STILL couldn't get it right

I haven't gotten around to getting replacements yet. I'm probably going to get them from the original guy that takes a long time but has spot on fit and finish.

I forgot to mention that back then, a year ago, it took him 2 sets to almost get it right. What a shame, the communication was good. I believe he was not set up yet to produce quality fitment to the standards that our community demands or expects. At least the photos he sent me along the way looked awesome.

Unfortunately I'll be staying away from his products and not recommending his services.

Dang that sucks. I had no issues with the fit of the front and rear badges, but the logo on the rear is a little off.

^ just to be clear, I'm talking about the side badges for a 14' STi.

Also to note- he made a front plate for me out of carbon fiber. I sent him the metal one I had along with a schematic drawling. That piece was done well and is still on the car. I remember him telling me that he never made a front plate before. This was his first and it still looks awesome just over a year later.

Before anyone else places an order with this company here is my comments from another forum:


"Has anyone else had any issues with their orders from Dynamic Carbon Customs?

Awhile back I placed an order for some badges through Custom Carbon and Vinyl's website, then I found this thread and the discussion on how he's been screwing people. I filed a dispute with my credit card and got my money back and then placed an order with Dynamic Carbon Customs through his FB page as was recommended by some people on this thread.

Well, he's been good at responding to my inquiries about my order, but it's been over a year now and I've been told 'next month' repeatedly since August of last year.

Just wondering if anyone else has orders in with this guy and have been having problems."


"Just an update on this. Michael at Dynamic Carbon Customs has completely stopped responding to my FB messages after a year of very close communication. It's now been nearly 3 months since I last heard from him and my order has now been in with him for 15 months. I've asked for a resolution with no response.

For anyone considering ordering from Dynamic Carbon Customs Please be aware that the chances of you losing your deposit $$$ are high."
