Purchased a set of Grande Punto Abarth badges, the front one is the same as above, the rear one, the fixing pins that pop into two recessed plastic pieces on the boot(trunk) are not the same distance apart so will not fit,you could just use the sticky pad to fix it on.My plan is to turn two brass pins copying the orginal ones but with a thread on the back to screw into the rear Abarth badge positioned the same distance apart and clip it into the plastic pieces
How did you manage to undo the nut on the front badge, I see you have a flexable shaft driver, did you go through the upper front grill

TBH - the Standard A124 badges are cheap and tacky

I am thinking what I could replace them with - they are sorta bugging me

There is reverse angle when you take out the nut that's why you need control tool angle. I think photos will explain better than words

There is no Abarth brand in my Country, I like Abarth look. That's why ordering mirror covers and other parts
Wow, murat124, I wasn鈥檛 aware of that. What a bummer! Where are you from? I wouldn鈥檛 be happy if Abarths weren鈥檛 available here in America, in fact most US Abarth owners wish that their Abarths were configured identical to the European version, most of which deals with badging.

As far as the standard badging, I'd have chosen none on either hood or boot. It would increase confusion in onlookers. But smaller is preferable.

Best regards

Agree to the smaller the better. I deleted the rear badge, but was unable to delete the front due to the round recess under the front badge. The nose is plastic and doesn鈥檛 lend itself to bodywork well. I didn鈥檛 want a huge plug of Bondo filling it

Murat,

A big big thank you. Using your approach it took me less than 2 minutes to remove the front badge. For anyone wondering it is a 10mm nut and is very easy to loosen with a flexible bit set.
