    Hey peeps...

    Concerned as of late about all these A3 thefts and now the 2.0T is a target too... I wanted to remove the 2.0T badge.. but I've never removed one before and would not know how to. Posting it up in detailing because I guess I need something to remove any glue/residue so I can polish and blend it in.

    Never liked the badge on the back anyway so it's a good time to remove it.

    Heat the badge up with a hair drier. Pull the badge off, using floss/fishing line to cut through the adhesive foam if necessary

    Peel off as much of the adhesive as possible then use a tar and glue remover such as autosmart tardis to remove any residue

    You probably need to polish the area as well

    You will get some ghosting left behind when the badge is removed as the paint around it will have faded and the paint under the badge wont have.
