      The stuck-on ‘metal’ ones are easy with dental floss, but the flat plastic ones (e.g. Stepway) would probably require a chemical such as acetone or lighter fuel, and I would leave them well alone - I’m happy to be corrected on that!

       

      Personally I don’t have a problem with my Stepway’ badges, but I would probably draw a line with the ‘Dokker’ and ‘Lodgy’ names that are used here - do they have them in the UK?

      No Dokkers or Lodgys available in the UK although some people want them ! wink.png

      Hi,

      Just put a deposit on a Logan Stepway.

      Overall i think it looks ok, but the tacky LOGAN MCV badge on the tailgate lift bugs me & the Stepway logo on the side

      Are they easy to remove?

      this must be the most annoying car i have ever bought regarding entry for the key.when in driving seat you cannot see the aperture for the key to start with next when you do line it up it does not go in the aperture.then its a matter of fidiling about until it does.????

      I never look for the "key hole/aperture". I can insert the key into the steering lock blindfolded ! It's always in the same place ! wink.png
