Just bought a brand new Fiesta Titanium 1.5 deisel 2013 model in race red with dress up kit & I'm very happy with it.

 

However I have one small niggle which I plan to take to the garage on Monday.

 

The car is badged with one of those ECOnetic badges at the back and there is no TITANIUM badge!

 

Has this been wrongly badged or is this something new with the new models?

 

If I'm going to fork out extra for the excellent Titanium model I want people to know that's what it is!

If you're going to purchase the titanium badge why not go for the American one? Someone got one the other day and it looks better than the ones we get lol

Oh well looks like it will be badge shopping on eBay.

 

Are they self adhesive?

the main reason is because they dont like to broadcast what model your car is on the latest ones. This stops the thieves spotting a high end motor as they drive by, thus hopefully putting them off trying to nick part of / your complete car.
