    S3, Easy to debadge?

    As per title really.
    Which if any of the rear badges once removed reveal holes?
    I may even want to remove the audi rings as well, not certain yet.

    Presumably the S3 grille badge clips in somehow and can also be removed?
    Happy to leave Audi rings on the front though.

    I'd rather not advertise what's under the bonnet?
    I've yet to buy mine but once I do I suspect you'll be hearing from me often

    Thanks

    there are no holes behind the badges.
    don't remove the rings.
    s3 grille badge unclips from behind, stick a finger throught the grille and slightly pull up a little clip and pull out the badge.

    i've done that, and i'm happy with it.

    Warm it up with a hair dryer and use floss to get under there. Go slow!

    Tardis is probably the best stuff to get rid of the glue residue stuff that's left behind from the rear badges as well.

    Will the wheels, rear bumper, front bumper, chrome mirrors, spoiler not give it away that it is an S3?

    The badge at the front will leave a recess.

    Done mine in about an hour just use a hair dryer to get them hot and gently twist them. To remove sticky stuff tardis or similar is best. Just take your time and admire the rear end transformation

    Yes, to someone who can tell the difference. Not to mention the oval exhaust pipes.
    But it will catch the eye of a magpie type toerag less. My last 4 cars have been debadged,
    I might get some plain A3 mirrors on there as well now that you come to mention it though.
    I'll put the shiny ones away until I sell the car again.
    That's if I ever find one that fits the bill
