Can you control the urge to...

push down the Alfa logo on the back of some models which cover the bootlid lock?

Why do people leave it up? Lazy? Must be. Not Alfisti? Definetely!

When I were a lad (queue Dvorak's New World symphony - Hovis music for the peasants out there!) nicking car badges was the thing to do, started by the Beastie Boys of course. My mates had an impressive collection between them, but I only ever wanted an Alfa badge and didn't have the heart to rip one off! I eventually nicked one from a scrap yard, but still felt a pang of guilt!

No, just forgetful sometimes........ guilty as charged



If it makes you feel any better, I feel really guilty about it and flog myself with a birch each time I realise I left it up

Hate when people forget to put the logo back in place.

I always put it back after unlocking but before opening the trunk.

Grrr, had them nicked from my first alfa and i was seriously peed off!
the beastie boys should have been flogged to within an inch of their life for that craze!
When i put replacements on i inscribed on the back F*** off you thieving B******s! and superglued them!
I do always want to put other peoples badges down but as it isn't my car I have too much respect than to touch them

Yes but barely. Almost tempted to get of the car even in traffic if the one in front is still up.
I've got the same affliction as Jorilla, flip the badge over, unlock the boot, flip the badge back and then open the boot. Dear oh dear.

Course they can leave it up (ooh-er missus). We're free and easy going after all (apparently)
