OK, I'm utterly skint atm, so can't afford to do anything major to my car, but would my car look good if I replaced the SX badges with some different ones? eg. Furio/VTS? Any suggestions and comments welcome!

I would say that 90% of people on here would say "Don’t badge your car up as something its not" Personally i don’t think it makes much difference i.e. wouldn't look any better or worse,

If you want to change your badges go for it! :)

The idea really was just to make the car different from every other C2 on Sussex's roads. Most of them are SXs driven by old people, which is annoying, so I just wanted to differentiate myself from them but cheaply! :D

No, due to you havn't got a bodykit or spoiler, a Furio and Vtr/s have the bodykit, so it is a bit of a give away.
Mine has gone back to a Furio today, the VTR+ badges are off.

Would I be able to put the SX badges in a different place then, like your badges, Simon? But then again, I'd feel stupid because 2 or 3 other people here have done that too.

I could rebadge it as the SeXy!

Simon72
18-11-2006, 11:04 PM
Find an "e" on e-bay and move the badges SeX

That would be different

My mate did something like that, by making 'JO' with badges and putting them under the Peugeot badge on the back of her 106. I don't want to do that with EMMA, because that would be really copying! I think I'll ask her where she bought the letters and make SeXy. :D

Can you please confirm that you CAN remove any badges from the C2 and put them back on easily when it comes to resale time? My dad's convinced that it will knock a chunk of the resale value off the car if I remove the badges, and that it will look really stupid! You can tell he's old, can't you? :roll:

The side badges are held on with double sided sticky foam. (No holes) They may break, but don't worry.
Then the remaining glue just rubs off, t-cut paint to get the paint back to shinny
The original badges from citroen are about £1.50 each.

Best thing to do if you dont want people to know its an SX is to just remove all the badges and dont replace them with any others. You could leave it their imagination :P

First thing I did was get a kettle of hot water and take my SX badges off the side of the car, then have put a HDi badge on the back, nice and subtle is best :lol:

petrolhead
19-11-2006, 02:50 PM
Only problem is that mine's not an HDi, and it might look a little silly with 1.1 on the back...actually, what do you reckon?

You are not serious?

:lol: I probably was serious for a second, but I've had time to think about it and yes, having 1.1 on the back would look a little stupid!!

19-11-2006, 06:12 PM
Do what I did, you know you love it really!!!

petrolhead
19-11-2006, 07:34 PM
I have to admit, I do!! It looks so cool next to the cupholder, I might well have to order another one from Shitroen and put it there. :D

19-11-2006, 07:59 PM
lol wasn't expecting that!

I was washing my car the other day and looked at the car in a funny angle and decided I didn't like the SX badges, so I took them off and I think it's better; I've told people I have a VTR LOL. Oh dear how gullable are they!

Some C2s don't even have the model badges on, and it won't effect the price of the car AT ALL if you remove them! (although repositioning them on the windscreen might)

nooo, just debadge it emma, although people will still know that it is a sx as it has silver door handles, why dont you spray them black

Take them off if you want, to add mystery, but don't badge it up to be something it's not, especially when it's not a real model. Whoever would do that? For example, Furio to VTR+?

Don't worry about resale. You can always stick them back on. And the back ones have locating lugs and holes in the body, so don't remove them.

Use hot water or a hairdryer on them first, to soften the glue.
