Even if this problem is not there in my city. I have found many cars from Mangalore without the logos. Mainly the Skoda & VW since they are very easy to remove. It really irritates you if you see your car without the logo. It spoils the whole look. I myself own a polo & without the logo, car will look disgusting!
Till now, I haven't been the victim & will pray to god to save my beautiful logo!
Its true buddy. The rear costs 8000 and the front one costs 2000! So many people won't anyway buy it from the dealer coz they might get the stolen ones for 500-1500 bucks (main reason for the stealing).
If you happen to notice a stolen logo on parked cab, auto, bus , just ask the driver from where did he bought, as you would also like to get one ,.Don't tell him that your logo had been stolen, act as if you are fond of them.
If he gives the address of shop you sre likely to get your or somebody elses stolen logo back @ much cheaper rate.
And if you have a friend in police, give him the address, if you do not buy a logo again from the same shop!
The rear VW polo logo is stuck as a lock/unlock handle, which is integrated with the locking mechanism of car. Its firmly stuck in the slot and too tough to be broken/ stolen. Even then if it gets stolen, it would be covered under insurance so one may not have to pay complete 8000 bucks, only a small portion of it.
The front logo is for 1600 Rs.. now thats quite high a price.
