Red badge making me think hummm?

this is a quote from a fiat fourm about the red badges

''The storey is that Piero Ferrari (vice chairman of ferrari) and Stefano Domenicali(motorsport director) were talking about the f1 ferrari and piero did`nt like the blue fiat badge on the nose of the ferrari,so he had a word in Luca di Montezemolo(the chaiman) he presented it at the next board meeting and had it changed to red so it would`nt spoil the ferrari.Iin the end they just printed the name fiat in white letters on the nose as the red background colour now blends in with the ferrari red instead of the blue background.
Thats why fiat badges from 2007 are now red(nice colour). ''


I have the Red badge, the guy said its a standard car and nothing has been done to it, i then have blue hub caps on the wheels and a blue badge on the wheel, i am just wondering how come i got the red badge? my car is just a 1.4 Active, not even an aircon or sport :L

Presumably either a previous owner fancied a change, or your car has had a front end shunt and the body shop ordered a red badge in error. It would have come from the factory with blue badges as the change to red happened after Stilo production had ended...

Most likely explanation.

Some people just change them, I purchased a complete badge kit from my dealer which included the front, rear and wheel badges on my old stilo.
