    Default Badges falling off!

    In complete contrast to the usual 'how do i remove those stubborn boot badges', i noticed last week my 'Direct' badge was missing, i thought some little scumbag has nicked it, then i noticed it lying on the driveway a few days later when the snow had melted, now today i go out and my '2.2' badge has fell off too! To think i've spent ages trying to get them off before and now they're just falling off, has anybody else experienced this? Is it because of the salt and the freezing weather?

    my vauxhall and dualfuel badges fell off when i was washing the car with hot water! i think it looks good, so when the weather is better, will give the chrome strip a polish to get the residue off, should look wicked! just enjoy mate, what else can you do!?

    Yeah i'm not bothered, I just thought it was bizarre! Especially since I'd spent the entire previous week cursing a non-existent badge thief lol
