I know the SXi badges look lost
I cant decide whether to take them off completely of just move them up so they are inline with the indicator and the door handles...... as I want to keep them on the car somewhere.

mike16v - There are really really faint marks, but you cant see them at all when you look at the car, the only time I have been able to see them is when another cars headlights are shining right past the car...... even then I had to be really close up to see them. Im very happy with the job I did They came off really easy, and make the car look better IMO.....

I drove past another car the same colour as mine yesterday evening and I said to myself "he needs to get them strips off", once youve gone smooth you never go back (nice little bit of humor there)

Still unsure what to so with the SXi badges, nearly everyone is saying take them off, but if I do people look at the car and think Bog standard corsa, with a few mods.... But I want people to know I drive a Highish spec Corsa, (did that make sence??) Thinking about just moving them up inline with the Indicator and door handles..... ON/OFF/MOVE THEM?? Help me

mmmm now you have me thinking, that sounds like a good idea, I will keep them on for now, but when I get a new front and a new grill I will put one on there like you said and then put on on the boot where the Vauxhall Badge is now...... it will fit on there ok right??

OK looks like people are saying to take them off, so I guess I will, I will probably put one on the grill when I get a new one, and put on where the Vauxhall Badge is on the boot eventually.

Cheers for the advice guys.
