    Eucalyptus oil is great for getting sticky stuff off of anything without scratching or messing with the lacquer - get a little bottle from the pharmacy for a few pennys....

    Hi,

    I just did this to my car and found a slighty different method if you dont want to buy the tar remover etc.

    I used dental floss down the back of the badge - didn't heat it first. Washed the area after badge removal with lots of hot water with car shampoo in it.

    Used my finger over the glue - just rub at it and it comes off. Wash area again and all the bits are removed.

    *Disclaimer* I do have one mofo of a blister on my finger though

    I de-badged one of my old fiestas.

    I used a dab of petrol to loosen off the glue - it worked

    HI, i was just wondering if you could help me. i am just in the middle of ordering front and rear badges for my 525, E39, i know the front one is 82mm, but im getting conflicting results for the rear and people telling me different sizes, including 2 different BMW garages for the boot. Can you recall what size the rear badge is as i dont have the car at the moment.
    Cheers

    Did my rear model badge today, far easier than the original post...

    Before (well after i washed the car)...



    After using some dental floss behind the badge, horrible glue...



    Gave the area another wash with warm soapy water, then using a Helfrauds trade card...



    Afterwards gave it another wash with soapy water, dried, then using some 'scratch remover'/polish, job done

    Quite agree, I de badged my previous bmw, 318i and my latest 320d.
    An easy job and the boot looks so much better!

    Good guide.

    BUT

    What can I stick them on again with?
    I want to take them off and paint them then put them back on.
    I am going to paint them Satin Black because you cannot see the silver letters on a silver car!

    Cheers!
