Question Do You Like Dealer stickers/decals on your Car ??

Hi Guys,

Do you guys like the stickers which are put on ur vehicle whenever its given to a dealers &/or service centers. Coz i personally hate it & i used to make sure that whenever my dad's car is out for service or to some accsories shop that they dont put their sticker. I mean besides ruining the stock lookk why shud we do marketing for them

Please lemme know ur views on this

Regards

Techno

I hate em too. I always leave specific instructions not to put any stickers on my car when i leave it for servicing. Its my car, not a billboard for free!
But even after leaving instructions, they always put the sticker and i always tell them to remove it then n there.
The TBHP stickers are the only ones i will ever put on my car. Just havta move my lazy behind.

What gets me is when they put stickers covering half the headlights - that gets my goat. Got enough club/ building parking stickers to contend with

i think by law, that part of your headlights is supposed to be covered. So the stickers over there are saving you some bucks actually.

"Caring for you.......always" What a load of crap. Shreenath Hyundai tagline. They didn't even have the courtesy to offer us a test drive.

No Amitoj, there is no proof that if one covers the headlights center spot, glare would be any less.
Technically it's not proven so I don't know how did this law came in the picture. One more stupid one from RTO. Sorry

I have only clean APPLE logo at the rear glass.

I hate it. Infact when I had taken my Indigo to the service station they wanted to put their sticker and mobile number on the rear window. I warned them that I shouldnt see the sticker when I come to pick up the car!!
Ps: In Gujurat, u need to have a tape on the right corner of u r right headlight as a rule!!!

Someone once told me that thats a sort of PUC certification for cars in Gujurat! Any truth behind it?

Yeah, well the main problem is the fact that people do not know how to align their damn headlights!!! so i guess they find it easier to stick a peice of tape on.
If your headlights are aligned well there will be no real need for a peice of tape on your headlights.

ps - and oh... about the stickers... i was like Z classe, kept even the PUC in my glove compartment..... until TBHP came around, and then i had to give way and put a TBHP sticker on my car...... but i actually really have grown to like it!
