But wouldn't putting stickers/badges on a car that is not it, seem kinda rice?

Putting a Spirit-R badge on a NON-spirit R car?

Like putting Type-R badge on a regular integra?

^ The RX-7 had the R1 in 1993 and R2 in 1994 & 1995, but they don't have a badge for it either.

Only Spirit R RX-7 had the badge. The JDM RZ RX-7 had the sticker (not a badge). The Bathurst R RX-7 in Australia had the sticker, but not a badge again.

Then now the Spirit R RX-8 have a similar badge to the Spirit R RX-7, which is to continue the tradition or something.

R3 is basically the USDM Spirit R.

Like the GT in AUS is the USDM R3, IIRC

I'd put a Spirit R Badge on my R3. But not for $75.

Less chrome on the inside. I'm thinking of ordering them for that reason, I hate chrome.

There are absolutely no differences between the R3 and the Spirit R other than gold wheels, red brake calipers, piano black finish on the centre console, different lettering on the seats, chromeless tail lights, Spirit R badges and an owner's manual that says Spirit R.

Mechanically and where it matters, it is identical.

Forgot about the mascara. Also I believe the gold wheels are 20" which means $1600 for a set of tires every time.

I have no idea are the spirit R rims lighter than R3 rims or not. If get a R3 rims and powercoat it to gold, then that's really a replication of the Spirit R rims... and maybe cost you even more to do such job than just get the authentic Spirit R rims.
