Kwaz1335 04-22-2009 11:21 PM

I told my dealer you can put a licence plate frame on there...anything else and you will be paying to have it removed professionally...He wrote on my order sheet in big bold letters(almost Magnum 40 size letters) to not put anything on the vehicle..problem solved :D

problem is nowadays, like the one above, uses metal badges
this guy in my area sells MERCEDES, BMW, ASTON-MARTIN, LEXUS ETC, one of the largest dealers in the tri-state area puts these on all his cars not too bad on these cars but most wear it like a badge of honor "YEP, GOT MY CAR FROM RAY CATENA !"

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Camaro scotty made up a sheet and I gave one to my dealer!!!

1) DO NOT DRILL holes for front license plate!!! leave the plate frame in the trunk.

2) NO stickers or markers on the car or owners manual. rear plate frame is okay, but nothing else.

3) LEAVE the carpets in the back in the trunk with the car's build sheet entact on the bag.

that's cool, so do we have to get this from scotty or can you just make up the sheet and give it to your dealer

Oh hell yeah I hate dealer badges

Jamie Mac 04-23-2009 01:07 AM

I'd never thought about it before until I was getting the wifes SKY serviced one day. Went into the showroom and they had a sticker on the back of a SKY. Looks horrible

Tal 04-23-2009 01:11 AM

The license plate frames are fine but dealer stickers & badges look like crap at least 99% of the time, which is a horrible thing to do with a good looking car like this.

Was not my intent to make my dealer look bad... unfortunately customers don't always think about these things, and it is rare for a lot of communication between the prep detailers and the sales staff. It is still our responsibility to make sure this doesn't get put on our cars, not like this is something new.

Just make sure we all have our checklists in hand... and our sleeping bags ready.;)

I absolutely hate dealer emblems. I have always made them take them off as part of the deal. Heck I even take of the dealer lic plate frame. I just don't care for dealers advertising on my car. I have seen some small fairly tasteful stickers that are not too bad but the dealers that put big plastic badges on a stupid.

Overall I am very anti dealer badge. But to each his own.

01pewterz28 04-23-2009 07:21 AM

It's not that big of a deal nothing a 12" piece of dental floss will not take care of or if it's a sticker easily peeled off and use a little adhesive remover. I would prefer they did not put it on (I have asked) some times the message does not make to the boys back in the detailing area. When I purchased my Silverado and Suburban (both ordered) the boys in the back put it on I asked that it not be applied) no biggie as I was inspecting the car I just peeled the decal off and tossed it in the trash :)

SIK07GTSTANG 04-23-2009 07:23 AM

Dealer badge = no bueno.

ssdavidw 04-23-2009 07:29 AM

My dealer uses a small vinyl decal, which I'm fine with. Peels off easy and doesn't leave anything behind.

SilverTurtle 04-23-2009 07:29 AM

when they put those metal badges on, simply hit them with the heat gun and then use some dental floss that you've rolled together three times to slide behind the badge and cut through the adhesive strip... from there, its just a matter of getting the gooey residue off ;)
