    I have been looking at buying a Supercopa and am looking at one in particular. The problem is that it doesn't have the Supercopa badges in between the doors on the pillar, instead it has one on the boot next to the FR badge.
    Is this right as the only other ones I have seen have the badges between the doors on the pillar. Just want to make sure it is genuine. It is also Monsoon Grey, Is this a standard Supercopa colour?

    Thanks.

    Mines grey, the supercopa badges should only be on the B pillar, though mine were removed by the previous owner (in the glove box thank fully, never been bothered to replace them)

    You're right. The Supercopa doesn't have bigger brakes at all. It's just a normal FR with a body kit and a twin exit exhaust. Nothing more. As such, the Supercopa has the same size brakes as a normal FR.

    Supercopa badges were fitted to the B pillars from the factory so if they're missing it probably just means the car was de-badged.

    Thanks all for your replies.
    It looks like then some came with and some came without.
    I have bought some genuine badges from Sere motors so I can put them on as I like them. dealer says they are no longer available but luckily Sere were selling some on ebay so I bought 4, got a couple extra for spares.
    Picking the car up on Monday, just hope dealer has done all the things I asked them to do.....

    Thanks again.
