    I use thick cloth (last time I used a microfibre). The card doesn't aid leverage, but cloth does.

    Hello All,

    Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but does anyone know if the above process also works for removing the boot lid roundel on an M? Or is there another way of getting this off?

    I splashed out this week on a couple of bits that needed tidying up: £102 for a new gear know and £33 for the boot lid roundel. On that subject, why does a bit of plastic and leather (gear knob) cost £102? I thought half that would still be over the top!

    Thanks

    R

    Those kind of bits are always expensive unfortunately, but because they are cosmetic most of us are happy to pay for them

    quick tip, try using the windscreen mount for a sat nav, the sucky bit with the suction lock...
    I did it, secure it right on the roundel then lock it off and its something to pull it off with :D
    That makes no sense even to me but hopefully y'all can get the idea
