    Default de-badge problem

    i de-badged the rear and some paint was removed, i got a new griffin badge to cover this, bagde was a bit small than what was on so i had to put it on slightly off center between chrome strip and bottom of vxr spoiler.

    That's a shame.

    It obviously bothers you or you wouldn't have posted on here about it. I understand, I'd be the same.

    To be honest though, most folk probably wouldn't even notice, or if they did, wouldn't quite be able to put their finger on why it looked different.

    Short of a local paint job being done between your chrome strip and your spoiler, I don't think there will be much you can do about it sadly.

    How much paint was removed? You could get a chips away job done on it?

    Bit of a daft question, but why didn't you get the right badge? IIRC it should have been 63mm. Some of the other models use stick on badges that are a smaller diameter, which I guess you have.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
