Not sure if anyone has done this before but I was wondering if you could swap the bonnet and boot badges on a 53 plate estate for the newer style badge without having to get custom ones made

Hi, I'm guessing a 53 plate has the silver lion on the back, without the black surround like the older ones?

These are not interchangable as for some bizarre reason Peugeot decided to move the 2 holes the badges locate into. On the pre-53 the 2 holes are side by side, on the later 53 and 04 plate the holes are diagonal.. :roll:

As for the front badge, I've only seen colour coded ones, or the removal of the badge. I can't picture how a new badge will fit on the older grill...

Yeah its the older one with no surround
Think some of the newer front badges are similar shapes just think I like the newer lion a little more
Thanks for the reply
