Hey guys (and gals),
I wanted to debadge my car in the spring but I also wanted to place some sort of badge on the car to eventually distinguish it from all the other foci out there... and to distinguish it for what I eventually hope will be a spooling turbo! Your info would be appreciated. And yes, these are emblems from other vehicles hence the tranplant reference.

Let me know what you think of the small SVT like focus badge below the badges and make sure to click the images for a larger view!

Sorry, dont like any of them but that's just me. I wouldn't want an emblem that represents a completely different car on my focus.

I have to agree with glowin on this one, its kind of like putting "GTR" badges on Stangs.

However, CFM has a lot of sweet emblems that say "Turbocharged." Also, try looking into European emblems they still rep the Focus but look a lot nicer than the American logos.

BTW where are you from in IL? It says Chi, but it looks like the 'burbs.

JGUSTAFSON, what did you mean about the Euro emblems... I just don't wanna rep a RS or ST badge when it obviously wouldn't be... I was actually more interested to find any non vehicle specific badges, but there doesn't seem to be anything other than the generic "turbocharged" or "supercharged" emblems out there. And I def don't wanna make it look ricey... that would be counter productive! Thanks for the info so far guys, and does anyone know where they sell or even make emblems? I would def enjoy making a new design and then get it custom fabricated.

The euro emblems say focus in a different font than here in the U.S. or completely different phrases such as this one,

Have you checked C-F-Ms inventory, their badges are pretty nice, I don't really know what you mean by "generic" though.

here's the best badge transplant. euro st on my US st. and the "motivational" poster i made. LOL


LOL but seriously, i don't like any of them. just my opinion. i mean some people might say it's stupid for me to have a euro st badge, but hey, it looks WAY better. plus atleast my car IS an ST, a US ST, but still an ST. LOL if your gonna do a badge, goo simple euro. it will be diferent, but atleast authentic.

BTW, I found out that the FLIGHT model in the UK is a "poverty" model and I suggest that no1 place that badge on their car! I mean, you don't want to be know for driving around a POS!

What about the 2.3 designation like the Mazda3's have by the front pass/driver doors? Any opinions on that? I think that would look sweet, and as far as I know there isn't a factory focus with side badges. Or is there?
