Radiator badge faded

The radiator badge on my '08 159 (ungaraged) has faded to the point where it is barely recognisable. Main dealer quotes 70 to replace.

Anybody agree Alfa should really supply a new badge free of charge, as its sole function is to advertise the brand?

And anybody know how best to achieve this somewhat unlikely outcome?

Thanks for the link, DavidP. Thought I had searched the forum on this topic, but somehow didn't pick up previous posts. Might have known it was a familiar problem. Room for improvement, obviously -- how about it, Alfa?

Have you had it from new?
My Alfa badge on the tailgate was replaced after 18 months on warranty as the lacquer on the edge was broken.
