Re: Car logo theft / monograms stolen in India

My Ford logo has been stolen from the front grill of my Fiesta. Happened about a month back. Dealer quoted 2-2.5K.

Any idea where I can get a replacement in Delhi, at a lower cost ofcourse?

Thanks ad3952n - Any clue as to what could be the price range? Will have a benchmark when they give a price quote.

Re: Car logo theft / monograms stolen in India

I had seen couple of VW Polo front logo missing from the car. Most likely it was stolen and the owner had not fixed it all. Immediately, couldn't resist thinking about Polo - Car with a Hole

Logo of my cousins Polo got stolen. Vw is asking 1900 for it. Didn't realized Logos are so expensive and so easy to steal.

My goodness! Thatís just daylight robbery. It doesnít cost that much even if the OEM logo was imported. Please recheck from an alternative dealership.

Fords front grille logo, the big one, costs around 2k.
I can't understand the reason behind it being expensive. Is it imported or something?

Iíve no clue about Ford but VW Poloís front grilles are entirely Made in India and so are the monograms. I can confirm this since I had seen the Made in India part with the VW logo and the part number imprinted on both the grille, the monogram and the mesh behind it.

Ah! That explains why the owners did not fix it. Never imagined its so expensive. Thought non availability as the usual suspect since it was VW or the owner did not get the time to go.

Re: Car logo theft / monograms stolen in India

My Ford Figo is missing the logo at the back. The Fortune Ford service center quoted Rs 800 for it. I didn't go for it as it seemed too expensive. I expected it to be 200-300 at most. Is there any alternative place to purchase it in Hyderabad?

Re: Car logo theft / monograms stolen in India

I wish we can source the logos in a cheaper way. Maybe we can get the common ones made by someone.

Some moron flicked the "s" from my Nano's Twist. Any idea how much it costs for Tata logos?

It is embarrassing to go about with "twit" as the badge.

Wow, I can stock hundred of logos for my Swift with the 800 bucks that Ford is asking. What material is out made of BTW?

Recently I had to replace the logos on my boot lid:

Swift = Rs 62
ZDi = Rs 54
ABS = Rs 76
Suzuki - 'S' = Rs 58.

Looking at these rates I was pleasantly surprised.

Do look at Ministers road for some help with these logos.
