There are the boot badges, and if you have a Ti there is also the bonnet badge.

The only problem with removing the badges, is the fact that the cars are very old, and the paint underneath the badges has never seen the sun.

You will find that once you have removed the badges, there will be visible oxidisation of the paint around the area... and the paint under the badges is pristine.

This can probably be fixed with a cut and polish (haven't tried it yet!)

I removed all of my badges from the boot, Ti, 3.0, NISSAN SKYLINE- and the Ti badge from the bonnet. The boot isnt too bad, but the bonnet has a really shiny rectangle where the Ti badge used to be. (I guess the top of the bonnet gets more sun than the rear of the bootlid)

best bet from removin the badges off my s3 executive is to heat them a bit with a hair dryer or a paint stripping gun (b careful with the latter as it can end up doin as it says!). this will heat the double sided tape that they used up and make it come off easier. if bits get left behind, get some metho or something like that and it balls up when u rub it (sorta like eraser bits when u rub out pencil marks on paper)
