So you’re looking for a JDM Logo Huh?
The JDM craze has created many fashionable modifications for any JDM Car. JDM Decals have become a hugely popular craze – you can see some examples in our article on JDM Stickers. However there are some designs that have almost become JDM Logos, due to their huge popularity and commonality. This article will outline some of the JDM decals that have become candidates for the title of JDM Logo.
I heart JDM has become a huge contender for the JDM logo crown. It’s been overused to death, but is still a very popular addition to many JDM cars. The different variations that are constantly being made of the I heart JDM decal have added a level of freshness to it. But either way – it’s been used enough the be the contender for the king of JDM logos.
The shocker is another overused and much loved sticker, nothing particularly JDM about it – but it has been adopted time and time again by JDM cars enthusiasts. Its meaning should be obvious.. If not again check out the JDM Stickers article.
The wakaba JDM decal is one of the strongest contenders to the title of a JDM logo. It’s the only sticker on this list that is actually JDM. Starting its life a decal from Japan that is used to signal that the driver of the vehicle is a leaner driver. (Similar to l plates) it has been transformed into a JDM logo. Again overused and much loved this holds everything that is needed to be the definitive JDM logo
Eat sleep JDM – again another JDM logo that has been over used – the list keeps on growing. Can you see a trend yet!?
Mugen / nismo / TRD etc – these are all tuning companies of the relevant manufactures (mugen for Honda, nismo for Nissan, TRD (or Toyota racing development) for Toyota). These are some of the most hated cliché stickers and decals that can be put on a JDM car. 99% of the cars out there that have some of these tuning companies JDM logos on have 0% performance equipment purchased from them. It’s for this reason that I’m not going to include any of these in the list of contenders for king of JDM logos. I don’t mind many over used clichés, I personally love the shocker. But using these tuning companies logo’s on a car that has NOTHING to do with them = RETARD. Harsh but true (offended? – take them off)
Domokun – a popular JDM sticker that while not as popular as the others in this list –it’s still everywhere. Domokun is the official mascot of Japans NHK television network. As you can see it’s a awesome looking logo which is why it’s so popular. Out of all of these on the list – this is my favourite. But that’s got nothing to do with choosing a JDM logo
The crowning of the JDM Logo
Last place – F*cking mugen stickers
I heart JDM, is just too old for me to able to crown it the logo.
Eat sleep JDM is only a little bit better
The shocker comes in at 3rd place because it’s so damn funny to people who don’t know what it is when they find out.
Domokun comes in second, its more JDM than any of the others on this list. Except….
Wakaba is now the official JDM logo (because I say so) lol. It’s the only JDM logo candidate that is actually Japanese and is related to cars.
So there we have it – wakaba decal = JDM logo. Done.
