alternative "TURBO" badge designs

what are peoples thoughts on the "TURBO" badge used on the XT6T?
Personally I think it is plain and unimaginative.
I think it Ford should have used similar script as the XR6 sticker/badge as on the side skirts

I really want something different on mine (when I finally get it)

Can any of you dudes post any alternatives, like different lettering style or something

just ran thru the fonts on my pc and here is what i think was some of the better ones, didn't play with coloring or having different outline and centre fill colours or anything, just basic red lettering

What does the current turbo badge look like anyway. I like the third one listed...

i reckon they should ditch the turbo badge altogether, its so 80's to have a turbo badge on the car. they man as well add massive 'Twin Cam' decals down the side of the car. nearly every new turbo car either has nothing at all or a small t ie audi with 1.8t and saab as well

i voted dont care.. a badge is a badge, but it's also an ad for the product, so if ford thinks that little extra advertising is worth it, so be it *shrug*

I agree. Turbo badges remind me of the huge "24 VALVE" stickers of the 80s.

Turbos are common nowdays. I think just having an XR6T badge would do.

I personally wouldn't rush out and change the badge on my car. The top one that DK did looks OK though...probably the same font as fordxr6turbo.com? The other fonts look a bit too 80's for me! The only gripe I have about the turbo badge is on my red car it's black, I would of preferred a chrome one.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
