"Hi all, I have recently acquired a new Stilo. I am considering de-badging her on two places: The "stilo" badge on the the rear and the "active sport" badge on the off side wing.
Does anyone know if they are of the screwed in to bodywork variety or can I simply remove them via the hairdryer/butterknife method? Thanks all"

Re: de badging

Ah, well translated Most Fiats have stuck on badges that require the hairdryer/ kettle/ butterknife method, I would imagine the Stilo is the same but couldn't swear to it. I'm too tired to translate that back again

Re: de badging

In that case, I used hot water from a kettle and a fish slice to remove the badge, then removed the glue with nail varnish remover then a final wash over with warm water so it didn't affect the paintwork

Re: de badging

dental floss works very well with no bending of the badges so u can stick them back on to sell the car

hot soapy water to soften the glue

a final rinse with clean water

and a polish with a good car polish like autoglym super resin polish

Re: de badging

It's one thing I'm dead chuffed about actually, the badges being stuck on, many of my friends with other makes of car are dead jealous of my easy debadging jobbie Plus you can no longer tell I have the most basic model in the range
