Stolen badges
 
Some tosser has nicked the badges off my car. I've seen some on E-bay that vary in price from 3.50 to 150. Any advice on where I can get replacements (other than main dealer) for a price that I won't need a second mortgage for.

Ill sell yours back to you for 100. ;)

Main stealer prices at the going rate for a genuine badge. Check eBay but only search using part numbers.

Arseholes!

Where was it parked Zed?

Sad to hear, but I believe Paul (PWPro) has a drawer full of badges, I'm sure he'll be able to help :)

haha, oops.. yep he's the secret badge chief! :tard:

actually - he said it himself here post #22 - He took mine off when my car was there.

Did they get them off without damaging the paint? Pretty impressive for a thief if so! I took mine off as I think the rear looks cleaner without them and is easier to keep clean, but I know other people on here think differently...

Gtrt90 18th May 2017 11:54 PM

Didnthey cause any other damage when removing them? Ba****ds

If they managed take them off without damaging the paint I'm amazed because to debadge a car I need a heat gun fishing line glue remover 2 microfiber towels and a machine polisher

Seriously. If anyone has a pair they want to sell, I'm interested but not at silly prices

zed1 19th May 2017 01:31 PM

P.S. It happened in Spain somewhere between Cangas de Onis and Cangas del Narcea. Great area but just goes to show they got twats here too or as 1 sympathetic lad at a petrol station described them. Puta

dealer prices are shocking

there seems to be plenty of badges on yahoo japan at much more sensible prices

stokegtrlad 21st May 2017 09:37 PM

Carbon goodies do some nice looking black chrome badges

Thanks for the tip(s) guys. Both this and the Japanese sight look encouraging. I'll contact Carbon Goodies when I get home.

I have to say that the GTR seems to be really admired and liked here in Spain. Just wish those guys didn't admire it so much they felt they had to take the badges.
