    I'll bear it in mind if I can't afford that A6 Avant S-Line and need to get the MUCH cheaper Skoda Superb "Excellence"....

    Mine's got the 2.5TDI & Quattro badges missing. Whether they were removed or the car was ordered debadged, I wouldn't know.[​IMG]Personally, I hate the missing badges - I think it looks odd and I don't mind people knowing my car drinks at the dirty pump and besides, when you start it up, no-one's going to be fooled into thinking it's a 3.0 or S4....Does anyone know if you can still get the badges from Audi?

    It's not to hide it. If I had an s4 id still debadge it. Its a personal preference to the look of the car and I personally find the rear badges too messy.

    There is other ways but this is the easiest.

    Tar remover works well I think.

    no it will be fine as you are just using it to lift the sticky bits off the paint have done it on many cars with no problems at all. the manyonnaise will eat right into the paint thou if your hungry lol
