Got an idea last week that the ford badge would look good if it was changed to focus with the same font as ford,
so got in contact with DMB.uk.com the lads worked their magic and made it happen for me, Brilliant Group

i think it looks good but my missus says it cheapens the car and makes a mockery of it ,

what do you guys reckon please, i wont be offended
:lol:

:lol: my cars number 1 too my wife hates me waxing the car, hates ebay, hates the postman for delivering my purchased items from ebay :lol: and any modification i plan to do to the car including wind deflectors, and if im looking for tools around the house i can never find them, or mobile phone chargers, she moves everthing, i ask wheres the charger she replys in the drawer, but theirs 6 drawers :rolleyes:

i like the scuff plates, i have the same ones without the lights just embossed focus, they dont stick very well although it says 3m sticky pads, i had to buy extra pads to keep them down.

looks decent enough, i reckon its like marmite, you either love it or hate it...

i like the LED one someone posted...thought it would look class on the back with my LED lit reg plate.

is there any screws with the ford badge, i debadged the rest like "focus" "tdci" and they just stuck on, is it the same?

i Think theirs a clip type screw in the centre of it, the led one may come with a fitting kit,
my badge is a gel overlay, i put it on over the existing one with a hair dryer,
thanks for the comments.

John i have just got off talking with a Rep in China about those badge lights, i have found an even better one on there, 2 tone, displays white , then when you brake it turns red :D , there are also blue/red as well , i have the online shop now they are full of loads of lights haha. Those lights stick on and then you stick the ford badge on the top , i will have to measure the badge against what they say the size is , then decide if i want one or not . haha

Light up back with Lennys Focus badge would look good i think .

*EDIT*
Looking at the ford badge and the light background , it looks to me that the background light would not fit in the place of the ford badge as it is slightly bigger then the ford badge , and the badge then sits on the light , so the indentation for the badge does not look bige enough , i will have to check it out i think.

*EDIT*2
here is the link to them.

i just clicked, wouldnt there be a legal implecation to show blue lights on your car and also showing white light on the rear when they ask for red? i hope that made some sense.
