Hello from the people's republic of Accrington. I have a black G Sportiva and have noticed the green cloverleaf badges have faded high is really irritating. I've had a look on eBay but some of the prices may clear our deficit. Has anyone got some tips of where I can get replacements I was thinking of emailing Alfa to complain that the badges on a £26k car shouldn't fade after just over 3 years but a chap at work said I wouldn't get anywhere...


Other than that I am still loving my G and after getting over the shock of scraping one of my alloys I almost cried I need to soon decide to keep this one or swap for a new one. Does the 150 1.4 sound better than the 170?

Yes , but your link showed the Std. Cloverleaf rather than the Sportiva which has the smaller green leaf symbol and the Sportiva script.

The green paint on the cloverleaf of my sportiva logo is actually nearly gone :-(

I can find some replacement logos on eBay that look great and allegedly are the real thing but I'm wondering how do I remove the current logo? Won't it damage the paint?

Use dental floss. Get it behind the badge and with a flossing motion up and down you'll easily remove the glue/adhesive. No need for heat and risk of damaging the paint that way. Works perfectly.Then clean what glue remains if any with panel wipe, iso alcohol 50/50 with water or even white spirit . don't use any harsh chemicals like acetone or cellulose or you'll melt the paint.

Was the car left in the sun alot ? Thats the only reason I can think of why they would fade maybe.
