Being a long term Focus fan, I bought my 2004 one a couple of weeks ago and I'm thrilled with it. I was thinking of de-badging and already have taken the LX ones from the front wings. the "Focus" and "1.8" badges on the boot are black, which I've never seen before. At first I thought the chrome had rubbed off but on closer inspection found that wasn't the case.

Are these black badges rare? If they are then I'll leave them on.

What do you guys think?

They are incredibly rare, only one hundred sets were every made. They add a further 500 to the value of your car so don't touch them.

500?? I find that very hard to believe. I can just imagine when I come to sell it:"Oh and there's a 500 extra cost 'cos it's got black badges!" :lol:

Though, they do look nice against the Ink Blue paintwork.

Any more opinions on this? Anything would be helpful, I'm torn on what to do.

The MKII badges look mint on the mk1 in my mind although ive taken all of mine off and bought a ford "wolf tuning pack" badge with focus sport wrote on the bottom. Stands out alot aswel lol but black badges on a dark blue car are they even visable from more than 3ft back

I decided to de-badge, couldn't really see them against the Ink blue paintwork anyway, and I'm happy with the results! I'll post pictures when the weather is a bit nicer.

I was thinking of putting Mk 2 badges on, put what would you recommend for the right hand side?

Keeping it simple really. At the moment it's badgeless with blue side repeater lenses.

I've looked on fleabay and found the wolf badge that you have, which I rather like, and the Mk2 Focus badge. Or I may keep it plain.

I don't know yet.

Lol i left mine de-badged for a while just got to the point where i thought it looked a bit basic im after a new style focus badge (5), a tiny wolf one for the front grill (7 for 2) just dont go nutty with the badges otherwise itl look like youve gone mad in halfords. Check out the various ones ford do for the special edtions but for the love of flying god NEVER stick st badges on or them cheap 16v ones they look absoutly sh*t!

Those large Wolf badges would look good on the front wings, or where my LX badges were.

No worries mate were all human cant no everything lol. Mines desprate for a good scrub and polish bought a buffer a while back just wating for a day to use it and still searching for a good make of leather wipes tried the swartskof or what ever there called and they just made the seats super slippy which is fun on the back seat when your slinging it round some lanes with your mates in the car. On your little message thing it says youve got a colour coded lip on the edge of your alloys does that mean youve painted the very outer of your alloys red?

i had but after i done it didnt like it so they are back to there normal colour now bert stuff for leather is asda leather clean and feed in wipes and as a spray stops it cracking and doesnt make it too slippery if you find it is then respray it on the seats and buff with a slightly damp cloth and it wont be slippy i bought tesco cheap car polish about 3 quid brilliant stiuff can be used wet or dry and it brings up a lovely shine the paints so smooth afterwards as well if i had the cash ide fit leather then again 2 kids not the best idea last car that had leather one of them ripped the seat with her shoe summat stuck on it so a decent set of covers is what im looking for saw leather roush ones from the states then saw the price i could buy a seccond hand interior for less i got my ford racing badges put them on the black bit on outside of rear window they uit the colour of my car perfectly and look like they were meant to be there tip if youre worried about the rust people copmplain of behind wing mirrors i took mine off and no rust at all but to ensure it i bought a rubber seal from diy store and fitted it onto the inside edge of the baseplate as this is where water gets through cheap and worked a treat

I'm liking the new style Focus badge on the boot. 1 1/2 until the one I'm bidding for ends on e-bay.

How did you calculate position? Is that where the original one would've been?

I bought mine for 5 direct no wating around for auctions etc and the postage was free lol. It is where the original once was yea and in honest truth i stared at my neibours for about 10mins then got to work on mine using a steady hand and a good eye and got lucky. You can buy a tool for fitting them but im to tight.

personally to get it straight use a level and one of the kids crayons that way you can mark the line then with a blob of blue tack pop it on with the protective backing still on stand back and have a look if youre happy peel the backing off and fit the badge then with some polish clean the crayon off job done and as its crayon it wont damage or mark the car also for little chips rub the crayon over the chip then polish over it the crayon on the edges polishes off leaving the wax the same colour of the car in the chip protecting it and giving you a blemish free polish

jus tuse that stack youve got hidden under youre bed and all those magazines you say are colouring books lol just been testing some polish tesco cheap stuff bloody good polish did half with meguirs gold and the other with tesco tescos is smoother to the touch and as glossy and shiny meguirs 25quid tescos 2.86 less than 4 quid anyway ill be getting that stuff from now on ive used so far turtle wax ice and hard shell shine meguirs gold and extreme paste colour magic and tescos stuff has outshone them all even better it can be used wet or dry with a slightly damp cloth is best then when it hazes buff off if the car gets dirty you just wipe it down with a microfibre cloth and its still shiny

Just goes to show that the most expensive isn't neccessarily the best.

I use AutoGlym Aqua Wax. No residue, you use it on a wet car and takes 10-15 minutes for a full wax. 12.99 is a bit steep but you get 2 micro fibre cloths with it.
