    Hey guys, I'm wanting to spray or replace the audi badge with a satin black. How do I remove it?

    Thanks

    Open the bonnet and release the multiple locking tabs on the rear of the grill for it and out it comes.

    Ah okay! So really easy! Was worried that it was attached by some special glue

    No glue, it's definitely a simple job :)

    buy a proper black one from ebay, if you paint it, it'll all chip off after a few months.

    With prep aerosol. Hammerite works very well and is durable. Agree with aragorn though normal spray paint will chip and look scruffy in no time at all.

    Ah okay then :) I'll probably get black ones off the internet then. I've got a black avant, just want people's opinions. I was thinking Matte black? Rather than gloss?
