Some retard got hold of the Volkswagen logo on the wheels, that too only on the right two tires, my face went blank for a second thinking someone would actually do this, did make me laugh a little though.

Now I have to find where I can get hold of them again.

In case the logos are found missing for the very first time, I would not mind taking a chance and replacing them with the ones obtained from authorized agents by paying premium. However in case of repeated instances, it would mean that the culprit has maintained a track/ trace of my vehicle and would repeat his acts now and then. In such case, I see no meaning in supplying him with genuine logos at my cost. I would rather resort to fixing imitation logos at much lower price and deter the culprit.

Rather an interesting (yet funny) incident.

My partner's BMW X3's logos got stolen. We were planning to order another set of logos from the authorised dealer. Before doing that, We called up local PI-Police Inspector (PI was a badminton companion) just to unofficially complain about that incident. Our Local PI asked us to visit Police station for a cup of tea. We went to Police station. PI opened a small metal box in front of us, it was full of different logos of premiums cars. He offered us to take BMW's logo without any cost. We denied as we didn't want "chori ka mal" (Stolen goods). PI explained us that police always find this kind of stuff with a seasoned automobile thief.

Later, we got it installed from Parsoli Motors, Ahmedabad.

My Pulsar 200 Dtsi had '2' removed from its logo, leaving the zeroes behind.
Though I replaced the same, I had to buy the entire logo set as you can't get a part of it separately.
