    its your motor mate, just looks abit daft if you ever have to take it to a garage or anybody looks under bonnet to see no turbo and a tiny lump with a vxr sticker on, its a great looking car (jealous) i wouldnt ruin it.

    but you already have an OPC badge on your grille... having a VXR badge on the engine cover is a bad call... I know somebody on here who could get you a mondeo badge for the back if you like...
