    Do you mean on the mk5 ? Is it possible to do that or will it make the boot handle unsightly?

    not a 100% pete but I think its just glued/bonded on and the only way I can think u might get it off is heating the glue and carefully pulling it off, just like de-badging.... im sure someone must have done it on here

    i would guess its only bonded on aswell, u can buy the chrome strip which just sticks on so i guess the one on the coupes is the same,

    Exclamation

    I'm sure they are clipped in and have pins in the boot skin.

    The chrome tailgate trim on a Coupe is clipped in place, I think you will need a repaint to lose the fastenings. Well worth it in my opinion, the Coupe boot lid looks much sleeker without the chrome.

    Also an opportunity to shave the Griffin badge, Pete, did you see Ian's Coupe on our region's stand at Billing? He had done that
