BA Badges!

Interesting subject and just wanted your opinion..

Was reading on another forum that someone with a stock xr6 went out a purchased some xr6t turbo badges and stuck em on his car, then we have some complete looser who remains nameless - Sodomo the Clown - who wants to stick BA badges on an AU

Is this on or should these people be kicked - HARD!

I think Sticking equivalent badges (eg BA XR6 n/a badging on AU XR6) is fine, but things like badging N/A cars as turbo's and the like is just wrong.

I say kick them hard and then kick them again over and over. That is just stupid. Why put badges on your car that are for another one.

Stupidity is a bliss and some folks are really blissful

a BA XR n/a is a very worthy car on its own but once you put turbo badges on it you try to make it something that its not and it becomes just a wannbe. i think it really cheapens a car.

yeah givem a kick

KICK with a freaking big foot

I can just see all the wankers right now saying "ah mate i whipped one of those new ford turbos off the lights in my fully sick gemini last night" when really it was just an XT badged up...

not that any geminis would be beating fully sick (std!) XTs anyway...

anyone that plays with badges needs to be sat on aye minge

It's their car let them do what they want.

In the end, they are only fooling two people, themselves and people who don't know better.

Those that are in the know, will think them a wanker.

The person who owns the car, knows in the back of his mind that he doesn't own anything better. He is the one that has to live with it.
