welcome mate,lovely looking car...in my opinion i think the 's' badge looks far too close to the edge of the boot when placed at the end of 'zetec' so instead i stuck my at the end of focus...let me know what you think

saying that you may not want an 's' badge on the back atal. seen as your car is red it may not stand out as much and have the desired effect...
as for mods for your car there are tons... keep an eye out for people signatures to get some ideas yourself!!


Just been out again to have another look.

Agree that it would look too squashed at the end of 'Zetec' without moving 'Zetec' over. Looks fine next to the 'Focus' - worth extra consideration. Thanks for sharing the option and photo - much appreciated.

Not too concerned about S badge not standing out as red on red, as the side S's look decent enough.

Have also seen an S badge stuck to front grille on horizontal bars, not sure how secure it would be without full contact of the adhesive on a full surface. But definately adds something i think.

Have something to contribute?

Yea, thats something I've been thinking about. Are they the same 'S' badge as seen on boot/front wings???? or does the front grill ones have different fixings???

Not sure. Just presumed that they were the same. Maybe someone could confirm?

Yeah it's the same, someone did it a while back just sticking the badge on a plate and cable tie it to the grill slats

Search the forum and you may find the topic

Thanks for the pointer Haz93. Found some egs on forum. Will be on the lookout for a cable tie plate this weekend. Looked at prices on net, really only worth purchase if buying in bulk. Looks like it could be the solution.

Can anybody tell if this 'S' is genuine?

The phrase 'product seen as sold' seems strange for a brand new badge.

Would imagine that it is a good deal cheaper than buying them direct from Ford.

I very much doubt it is or the seller would have listed it as "Original" or "Genuine". He looks to have very good feedback though...

Oh just remembered I got mine free as the dealer said they would be about 5 quid but as they were meant to be on the car from factory then I managed to get them free of charge, also you have the warranty on your side if its under 3 years old

I popped into my local ford dealer and bought 2 'S' badges for just under £15 each, so i could rest easy they would be authentic and stick. Only 1 in stock, so waiting to pick them up on Friday.

Will place front one just as in alkyz89 's picture above. The back one i think will have to go under the 'Zetec' on the right hand side, due to it looking squashed after 'Zetec'.

Can't wait to see them on.

alkyz89 - front 'S' badge looks great. Hope you don't mind me nicking your idea. :)

Will post pics on Friday with badges on.

So, how long does it take 2 'S' badges to be delivered to a dealers? Seems like the answer is longer than a week. Went in to collect said badges today, after 7 days of waiting and they 'haven't arrived yet'. Unsure if they were actually ordered at all, but assured me they would be with me by Tuesday. All very annoying!
