grand scenic tailgate lettering

I have just purchased a 2015 Grand Scenic TomTom. There is no lettering on the tail gate (SCENIC). This makes me wonder whether this car has been involved in a rear shunt and been repaired. I purchased it from a Renault dealership and the salesman assures me that it has not and that it is a customer option not to have the lettering. Has anyone come across this before

I haven't heard of that option, but I'm not saying there wasn't one. If you suspect the tail gate was re-painted, you can check it with 'paint detective' or similar device. Measurements should be around 130 160 microns, around 190 indicates a re-spray, anything more than that and the dealer should be worried.

Re: grand scenic tailgate lettering

Did last owner maybe remove lettering themselves ?

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together

The last owner was a Renault marketing manager on a Renault lease agreement.
