Spares from Ford dealers

Been buying a lot of Tickford snorkels and tickford wing fender badges that I paint and sell on eBay. But the last set of wing badges that I got jumped from $12ea to $18ea.
Is this a ford, or local dealer rip off.

Get the Smaller ones now available. THey are only about 10 bucks each and are half the size. They are the ones that go on the AU II XR 17 centre caps...

Re: Spares from Ford dealers

Actually, how many sizes are there? I've only ever bought the standard exterior badges, im pretty sure you can get the little one that goes near the rocker of the VCT engines, and you may possibly be able to get the one that comes on the XR8 engine covers (its huge).

The ones on the XR8 engine covers only come when you buy the Engine cover.
The VCT ones are rectangle.

The engine covers don't come with a badge (well at least not the ones I've bought) - I've purchased the engines covers and badges seperately.
