    debaged but light marks

    Ok I followed the how to on the website, I managed to de-badge it but you can still see a faint outline where the letters were. I've tried white spirit, t cut, polish and a jet wash.

    You can only really see it when you about a meter away. I'll add a picture when I come back from the lakes or if they have wifi.

    Auto glym intensive tar remover will remove it. Or some of the missus nail polish remover.

    As above, I used tar remover then car polish
    It will be hard work and take a bit of time but eventually you'll get there
    Your car cannot handle a driver of this magnitude!

    Ive got the same problem and i removed the badges about 4months ago, so far I have tried using white spirit, tcut, lots of polish, nail varnish remover and lots of washes. Is the tar remover something that will deffinatly remove the marks and its a black car if it makes any differnce... thanks!

    Worst case scenario - it'll be like mine & scratched, but it'll be that fine that it'll look like it'll polish out & everyone will tell you that it 100% will, when it actually may not.

    I was told that without doubt it'll polish out. Went & looked into pro advice & was told no chance, it's too deep.
