    Spent a few hours today clean my a3 and while I was at it I thought I may aswell debagde it. What do you guys think. While I was polishing I with autoglym super resin I seen the exhaust was looking a little black so I got the autosol on it and they came up nice.

    It's easy mate I poured boiling water over the badges to soften the glue then just pulled them off. Then used mentholated sprints to take the excess glue off then just polished the marks out took me about 15mins in total.

    When your de-badging, I found using a hair dryer to loosen the glue, just move it round the edge, then denal floss to cut through the glue.
    tar remover to take of the remaining glue, and a right good polish, theres pics on my site of it de badged and polished.
