Badges? We don't need no stinkin'...

Anyone have some tips on removing the badges from the rear tailgate? Wanted to do it at delivery, but the dealership said they aren't allowed to do it (house rules). I'd like to be a little more stealth, so would be great to remove the "M" badge. Any help/advice appreciated!!!

Over on ZPost a guy used dental floss and I believe he used some GooOff to remove the residual rubbery glue. Put some wax on it right afterwords.

I tried to find the original post but it didn't turn up right away.

Check the detailing forum. Phil has done it several times.

Excellent link. Thanks. I needed some tips for my leather care, and there's plenty of other good references in that forum section I need to look at. Phil debadged the car, but from my reading of the thread didn't say how he did it, but I may have overlooked it. bibendum can do a search in the forum.

Summer is the best time to do this...if it's not warm enough where you are, a hair dryer helps to soften up, then slide either floss or the plastic strips used to tie boxes, behind the badges...works like a charm.

Oh and post pics

I used floss and a little GooOff. Then waxed. Because the car is so new, it comes off very easy. I think it looks grea without the badges.

I agree - a much cleaner look for sure.

My favorite fishing line and then some bug and tar remover from Meguires -as smooth as a baby's bottom!

Cheers,

Badgeless means less to wax around. With the exception of the ///M vehicles I've had over the years, I've always removed every badge from all my cars. True M cars are the ones I WANT people know that it's the real deal and the whoopin they could receive
