My s fell off

Ok - whilst washing the car today my "s" broke free from the "i" and came off. I am now a 3.0i on one side and a 3.0si on the other. Any top tips on how to stick it back on? Fortunately I still have the "s" :D

I used 3mm 3M double sided foam. 5mm was too thick imo

Personally I would debadge it - I got rid of the Z4 and 3.0si badges on mine shortly after I bought it. I prefer a clean look.

Agree within a week of buying my Z the badges had gone a much cleaner look

Maybe it’s a sign? :rofl:
De-badging looks better and easier to clean as well! Whether you’re washing, detailing, etc! :)

I wasn’t sure what I was going to find when I opened this post. I thought there might be some medical emergency! :o

You'd better fit an LSD ASAP, now that you have a 40 bhp difference from one side to the other! :o :!:

Loving the idea of an LSD to manage the power difference...... the ultimate excuse to spend some more money...
