Try sliding some string under the badge or some type of plunger to suck the thing off.
You coming on the 23rd????

I slipped a credit card under the edge to ease it up and then used a flat balde screwdriver wrapped in tape and used that between the badge and the credit card so it didn't touch the paint.

there are loads of solutions if you

Others use fishing wire. That nylon wrap that they put around large parcels is another option.

They only push into 2 plastic grommets so are not difficult to remove. - no adhesive is involved

Would love to come on 23rd but too far for me to travel.

Thanks for the info guys, putting cardon fibre badges on just to put my own personal stamp on the car.

Looking for a CSL style wheel too, do you know if CSL rims fit? Don't quite understand offsets

Try Mark at BMautosport.com

Top bloke, does great deals and more importantly sells good quality wheels at competitive prices

Tell him you were recommended by Paul with the white E90 M3 who bought the GTS wheels off him the other month.
