I finally took some time to rearrange the badges on the trunk lid. Personally, I like it but haven't gotten too much positive feedback on it so I would like your votes..<p><IMG SRC="http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff47/acpenny1c/0625091720a.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>this one's just for fun...<br><IMG SRC="http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff47/acpenny1c/0625091704a.jpg" BORDER="0">

I just <B>carefully</B> pulled them off then peeled any adhesive off followed with using a claybar and then waxed the area worked great for me.

On the topic of badges, anyone ever try removing the olser-style small centered volvo text at the top of the trunk and replacing with the newer, larger, and spaced out farther lettering? I've been mulling it over ever since my I turned in an '08 S40 loaner with the new badging. I think it looks really great on the new cars?

Re: Rearranged Badges (The S60R Dream)

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I'm sure there are people in Gothenburg whose partial job description it is to study font, font size, and placement of badges on the Volvo's they produce...for good reason.

Re: Rearranged Badges (draken)

I don't like it. I would either put the R back where it was, or take it off completely.

Re: Rearranged Badges (Tiny)

Yeah, it would look much better with the R in its place.

Re: (m3nt0s)

You know after getting towed yesterday, I thought to myself that it'd be a good idea to leave the AWD badge on so at least whoever's towing will see that it's AWD. Probably won't matter in the end but who knows...

Re: Rearranged Badges (draken)

Sorry man, but NO! You might do some change badges around on that Evo in the background, but S60R's have a certain amount of class and sophistication to them and it is not displayed in the placement of your badges here....Please....either put them back or remove them all completely.
