Re: Dealer Stickers

I was mad when I took my car into AC for a service and it came back out with a sticker (I had removed the original). Fortunately it peeled off easily but I was annoyed enough to mention it to Fiat when they phoned me for a customer review of my service experience. Next time I get my car serviced there I will make a point telling them not to stick their branding on my car - their service simply doesn't warrant free advertising.

Re: Dealer Stickers

I work for a dealership and still take the sticker out of all my cars.

Nothing to do with not wanting to advertise where I work, I just think they look horrible!

Nowhere near as bad as Chatsworth Honda in Nottingham though, they used to (and may still do) have metal-looking badges made up (basically the same as the model name badges on most cars) that they stuck on the outside of all the cars they sold!

Re: Dealer Stickers

Normally I wouldn't bother but due to the fact I had so much grief and hastle from the dealer I bought from, I took the rear window sticker (now has FF stick in the back window), tax disc holder (now has a plain one) and number plates off (now has private plate) on principle because I didn't want to advertise that dealer or the fact I had bought a car from them.

FJ Chalke in Somerset do a similar thing except they stick a little chrome plated dog on the back of all their cars .
If I went to pick up my brand new car and the idiots had vandalised it like that I would demand a completely new car, just to make a point .
