    Happy Easter Everyone

    Does anyone know how I can get the boot badge removed from my E46 Saloon?
    I have had a quick look but I didn't want to start pulling everything off before getting some sound advice?
    also I've seen replacement badges on EBay but if anyone knows of a more reputable source I'd love to know.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, I'd try the dealer first as you may be surprised. There's some advice on debadging in this thread http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...-badge-t13024/.

    The advice is heat it up and remove it using a credit card. Then use something like tar remover to remove the marks left behind.

    if you mean the bmw roundel then you gently lever it away from the boot as it uses 2 prongs to locate.put a cloth between your lever and the paintwork.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    thanks Ian S ,
    I think 328mark has passed onto me the inside technical knowhow as it is the BMW roundel that I'm after replacing.

    NO,NO,NO you've got me all wrong Neal , I'm very much an admirer of less is more, maybe just a set of angel eyes .
    I'm just after a direct replacement roundel as mine looks like its got some water in it and its lifting the top layer.
