Your front end photo has the redesigned DS grill, without the Citroen chevron grill. I thought the 60th anniversary model was the first year of the DS brand (when Citroen separated the two brands).
The wheel centres should have a DS logo and not the Citroen chevrons, as should the steering wheel.
I'd guess the previous owner perhaps added the Citroen badge at the rear. It's probably just an adhesive badge anyway.
It's odd. While it will just be a stick-on, it is shown in the parts diagram via the VIN of a similar DS5 I had borrowed to look it up. However, looking at a photo of that car, which I know has never been damaged, it has no Citroen badge, nor is it there in photos of the back end of a few others. Maybe, it was a panel shop error in going strictly by the parts book or someone just wanted to add it? Maybe, the local dealer stuck it on to help sell it in a market where DS was unknown??? It's not 'wrong' per the parts catalogue, but that does sometimes have errors or just variations because the DS range was regarded as 'personalised'. There was an attempt to make DS a separate brand without Citroen badging, so up to you if you keep it or remove it.
Thanks guys for your responses, I will leave it in place as it looks ok I was just a bit surprised it was there as all the youtube articles comment on no Citroen decals a standard.
Love the car it's brilliant
Our C5X7 is just about up for tyres (<25kkm on the ps4's)
will be going for P4s in 235/50-R18 for better low speed ride and hopefully some more life.
i usually don't worry about tyre wear as we don't do many klicks. But this was a shorter life than I expected.
the ps4 only have <couple of mm of tread left and now slip a bit on 'firm' acceleration. Time for them to go.
Thanks for that info, I have also figured out why the VIN # is not recognised by MYCITROEN (your gonna love this) it's a DS so I downloaded the MYDS app but when configuring the country for Australia there's no Australian dropdown option, DOH checkmate 😢
Glad to hear your enjoying the DS5 undoubtedly one of the finest built French/European cars around, still a head turner. With the map updates, if you live in Sydney John Brown at ReviveMyLion updated my maps about 15 months ago on my DS5 (2013 DS Sport). The tailgate badging on the Citroen Chevrons DS5 from the selection above is A + 3 only. With the tyres when it was time to replace the originals I looked around at alternative replacement options but in the end I decided to replace as per the originals those being ContiSport Contacts 235/45 R 18 Y.
