What color is the grill under the badge, the same as the rest of the grill? Can you remove the badge without scratching the surroundings? Looking forward to see those pictures!

Yep, under the badge, the grill is the same colour as the rest, but its a solid circle, not slats like the rest.

Grill and badge are easy to remove, and I don't think its that easy to scratch. I've had mine off a few times and not a problem yet.

Re: HELP front upper grill

Ok so it would look a little bit stupid to have it just removed. I think I will buy the Abarth badges. Last night my blue grill badge was hit by a huge stone and was completely destroyed. Winter sucks at least when you live here up north.

Re: HELP front upper grill

How can you guys say "Just Pull It" ? I had a look in the dealers last weekend and there are 20 clips! Pull that and surely you'll snap 'em off!

Trust us, we've done it a load of times.... just pull it straight and firmly, re-fitting is the reverse of removal

Best done in warm weather TBH tho
