Does she need the S badge?


Recommended Posts


Depends what you are asking 🙂

If you are looking at buying this and it is advertised as an S then I don't think they all had a front badge but it should be described as an S on the V5. I think there is some confusion over the S and Sport designations, I know I am confused. Mine is a 2.2 200 Sport Sportbrake which means it is NOT an S but has the sport bodykit (as does the one in your photo - Main difference is more aggressive looking nose). I think the S refers to the high output version of the V6. It is a matter of personal taste but I prefer without the badges. If you do like them I would suggest looking on eBay for the self-adhesive ones unless you are happy to take the front bumper off (not as big a job as it sounds) to fit it.

Hi Paul,

My vote would be 'no' - subtlety is everything, mostly!

My 2011 s Portfolio has a single S on the bootlid, that's enough for me, just so those who've been overtaken understand how/why!

Great looking car though!
