My wife noticed not long after we bought our 2007 QP Sport GT that the trident on the C-pillar was different side to side. One has red highlights in the bars below the trident and the other doesn't. Today, I noticed on a car listed on ebay the same thing. Ours has the red bars on the left side and this one has the red bars on the right side. The other side has no red highlights on both cars. Here are some pics of the ebay car of the side w/o the red highlights:



and the pic with the red highlights:



Anyone else?

Old vs. new??

The ones I bought from the dealership in 2006 and installed on my 2003 Maser Coupe DO NOT have the red paint between the horizontal bars. I believe the first time I saw the red paint was on the 2006 Gransports, or maybe the 2006 QPs.

The red painted badges are OEM and meant for the sporty versions of the cars (eg. QP GT S, GranSport, GranTurismo S, etc), but all the badges should have the red paint, not just on one side.

Maybe the former owner lost one and replaced it with the wrong model, for a GS.
