Started on my badges today... i got the 4 rings off with a little force and broke a few clips like you but hey ho... the replacement went straight in.

That RS badge is a pig... and has resulted in a few expletives! :rage: Did you take the whole honey comb grill off to get access to this... really cant see how its clipped in behind and scared of damaging the honey comb with any more force... Did you cut from the front of the RS badge or have a handy tool to reach around the back?

Gonna do the rear badges tomorrow hopefully, so it doesnt look stupid driving with gloss black rings and the front and chrome at the back lol.

Back when I had the RS4 detailed I was introduced to Gyeon - they do some fabulous products. Did my wife's A1 with Gyeon Wet Coat the other day. You wash the car normally and just before the final drying stage you spray the wet panels (1 panel at a time) with Wet Coat and then hose it off. Finally just drying the car normally - looks fabulous and lasts a few months.

The hydrophobic coating will help the water sheet off after washing and I find a watering can or the hospipe without the end on rather than a jet of water to rinse.
I have some gtechniq crystal serum and Exo ready to go on once the time and weather allows, makes the car so much easier to look after.
You'll love it Alan!

With this lockdown, Ive hardly driven my car, So the battery will be suffering, Ive just bought a AA trickle charger. It should keep it strong, (I hope)

I've been thinking about getting one of the ctek chargers too.
Had no issues as yet but the car hardly comes out to play so would be worthwhile.

How did you get on with yours Spike

Sorry yeah, had some time over Xmas at last to give it a shot. Front rings and rear badges are on but bottled it with the RS badge at the front for now. Just couldn't get in behind the radiator to unclipp... Was scared of breaking the plastic clips where the cover is that the bonnet rests on. Will try again tho... Happy with the results considering the amount of glue there was to remove the old ones!

Not had a look but can you not connect it to the points under the bonnet where you would jump start from?

Dont know. If you sort it , Let me know, Im thinking leave the lead connected to the battery , even tape them on, And just leave the end out to connect to power. I really should stick to building work.

I think its only a matter of time before you talk yourself into another car Alan as I'm guessing you get bored easy lol.
No doubt the GLC63 is a beast and a step up in class but you hated the GLA 45 you had?

Trannie van vs GLC63? I can see the comparison.
One makes money and the other burns it at an alarming rate lol
I'd take the GLC63 haha
Seriously though you seem to be having this dilemma every month. To say you've only done 5k in the RS, what.dont you like about it

Hi Ju, when i got the little amg, I looked at the GLC63s in the showroom and and liked it for size /power ect, But even newer ones have the crabbing pro, Id hate that, as I did with the gla, think I had it 8/10 weeks, awful car 17 plate too, And I like a nice van, lol. My RS is really as new, I like every thing about it. Im keeping it, ha ha ha, For now.

You sound just like me Alan. I've moved on far too many cars for the wrong reasons and plenty for the right ones too I might add!
I don't think that perfect car exists, they all have pluses and minuses, its just down to weighing up the whole package and getting the sweet spot right.
I don't think any of my pals believe me when I say this RSQ3 is staying for a long while.....but that is my intention.
It really is greater than the sum of its parts:icon thumright:
