    Just about to take the plunge and de-badge my white 2013 A4 S-Line (getting rid of the A4 and TDI from the rear).

    Am I right in thinking:

    - Heat area with hairdryer to soften the adhesive.

    - Run dental floss or fishing wire behind badges to remove.

    - Use Goo Gone or Sticky Stuff Remover to get rid of the leftover residue.

    Am I missing anything obvious? Anyone done it successfully and have any tips?

    Cheers

    Cheers Tashfeen - going to give it a bash after work tonight.

    Should I be applying anything after the adhesive remover such as a wax etc?

    Would be a good idea to do it however, I washed/polished the whole car after debadging and removing the adhesive just to make sure . The tar remover itself does a good job.

    Slide a credit card behind the letters, ping them off. Then fudge wheel the glue foam off.

    Dont really need any wire or heat to be honest.

    Even brake cleaner on a cloth will remove the sticky icky.

    Household items of WD40 first to soak and then a boiled kettle will do the majority .

    Yes, I think that “wire” sounded a bit too nasty, though I’m guessing that you meant fishing line, ie nylon not steel wire!
