I seen these and thought they looks pretty damn good!

Would look nice with this ST logo on the backrest of the ST-3 leather interior:

I've emailed them the logo and see what they come back with, for £11 though I think they're worth a punt?


Thoughts?

You'll probably find that they stop trading very soon. Ford will prosecute them for copyright infringement.

Really? What about all the other companies that make manufacturers logo's, DMB for example?

Like us, DMB have permission from Ford. It's highly unlikely, though not impossible, that this company has.

That's a patch for sewing on stuff, these ones I posted are a vinyl type badge that look embroidered, like the RS has, made specifically for attaching to a leather seat back :)

If you scroll to the bottom of the ad you will see that it can be ironed on as well, not sure if it would stick to leather?

Finally got round to fitting these today and to be honest they look excellent.

Very easy to fit and look like they will last.

I put them on the rear seat headrests too but didn't take a pic as was rushed for time.

To be honest unless you get really close (like within a foot) you would be hard pushed to tell they're not real!

Got to be the best mod I've done for under £20 yet :)

How did you end up fixing these?

They look really good.

You get full instructions, basically a little bottle of isopropyl alcohol to clean the area first then heat with a hairdryer and apply the vinyl, cant really go wrong to be honest and they're on there pretty firmly but not so they couldn't be removed if you wanted.

They look really good, fooled two of my mates who peered into the car with the window open.
