    Hi, de-badging is easy, pull the badge off, then dowse the remnants in Autoglym bug and tar remover, leave for a minute then work with a finger through a microfibre cloth. Residue will come straight off, if you're doing the boot, don't do the middle VX badge unless you are good at filling holes

    If you're looking at lowering more than 40mm then i would recommend new shocks aswell, any main brand manufacturer will give multiple options for you to go with.

    Performance HT leads won't make the slightest bit of difference to your engine and also they can be dangerous unless the rest of your ignition system is upgraded also.

    Panel filter is usually a k&n filter with a veccy c intake and de-restricted airbox. If you look in the technical guide section there is a tutorial for both

    when i debadged my corsa i soaked the badges in the tar and glue remover and they almost fell off, then wiped a load more glue remover over the remaining glue and it just rubbed straight off.

    i couldnt pull them off they were attached that hard

    I used WD40 in a halfords car park

    Can still slightly see the outlines of the badge in certain angles, but Im sure itll fade more with sunlight and more WD 40 and a rag!
