FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I EASILY ATTACH THE TEXT MYSELF?

You can attach the text you ordered on your Porsche yourself. High-quality bonding material has been applied to the back of the text, which has been tested and approved by the automotive industry. Your order includes simple instructions for attaching the text yourself. We nevertheless recommend having this done by your Porsche dealer. Your dealer uses cleaning alcohol to permanently remove any adhesive remnants of the current type marking. He can also accurately determine the correct position of the text.


CAN I EASILY REMOVE THE TEXT, FOR EXAMPLE IF I SELL THE CAR?

Yes. All names and texts produced by Name Your Porsche can be easily and quickly removed, just like the original type marking: this involves the application of heat which will ensure the adhesive tape comes loose. A hair drier is a commonly applied device to achieve this. Contact your Porsche dealer for assistance.


IS THE ATTACHMENT HEAT-RESISTANT?

Absolutely. Just like any other type marking on a Porsche, the attachment is resistant to high engine temperatures if positioned in the back, but also to high environmental temperatures in adverse weather conditions. Just as the original type marking, a special bonding material has been applied to your personalised text.


CAN I WASH MY PORSCHE IN A CARWASH OR USE A HIGH-PRESSURE CLEANER?

You certainly can. The bonding material that has been applied to attach your personal text will not come loose. The car industry uses this bonding material as a standard for attaching type markings. You can therefore clean your car with a high-pressure cleaner, without any problems. Cleaning in a carwash involving high pressures, brushes and hot air for drying will not be any problem either. The bonding material is designed to withstand it.


WHERE CAN I FIND THE COLOUR CODE IF I WANT TO ORDER THE LETTERS IN THE COLOUR OF MY PORSCHE?

You can find the original colour of your Porsche in your car documents, next to the chassis number. If you provide us with the code when you order, we will ensure that the name or text ordered by you is sprayed in exactly that colour.


WHY DOES NAME YOUR PORSCHE WANT TO KNOW THE YEAR OF MANUFACTURE WHEN PLACING AN ORDER?

When ordering, we will only ask whether your car was manufactured before or after 2010. This is because the type marking at Porsche was changed in that year. Since that time, the type marking is shown below the block capitals PORSCHE. Consequently, the type marking before 2010 was larger compared to current models. In order to be as consistent as possible with the design of your name or text, we need to know which typeface to use in the design.


CAN I ALSO ORDER LETTERS IN COMBINATION WITH NUMBERS, E.G. ‘MAX 3’? OR JUST NUMBERS?

You can. Other Porsche drivers have ordered combinations such as ‘Julian 2’, ‘911 XX’, ‘123 GO’ and ‘Too fast 4U’. Spaces in your name or text are not a problem.


WHY CAN'T I VIEW A SAMPLE OF MY TEXT ON THE WEBSITE?

Name Your Porsche does not work with a ‘standard’ font (typeface). Every text ordered is customised in its design by our designer. The text is therefore not made up from single letters, but is designed and cut as a whole. This is why we are unable to generate an automated sample. In this way we guarantee the highest possible quality of the text, securing the exclusivity of each product at the same time.


HOW DO I ATTACH THE TEXT IN EXACTLY THE RIGHT POSITION?

The position of the letters and/or numbers ordered by you must of course be exactly the same as that of the original type marking. You can apply the same method used by your Porsche dealer. He uses easy-to-remove tape to create a demarcated area on the bonnet or boot within which the text must be attached. Both the centre and height are important aspects in this process. We recommend asking your Porsche dealer to attach the text for you. This is because he has the right toolkit available for this job: cleaning alcohol and removable tape in order to mark the correct position.


HOW WILL MY PERSONAL TEXT BE ATTACHED TO THE CAR?

The pre-applied double-sided tape makes attaching extremely straightforward. Name Your Porsche uses the same high-quality tape that is used in the automotive industry. As a result, the text on your Porsche can also be removed again, if so desired.
