Have some superglue handy Rab,they tend to fall off


They may stick better on the pre facelift I am not sure,but before I put a bit glue on mine everytime you looked at it it fell off

Hi Rab

Like most people I found that the badge also needed a little encouragement to stay on

I stuck mine on with double sided tape.

Hey guys, can I ask what material your ST badge is made from? I ordered one from the internet and it said it was chrome when in fact it is plastic and the red bit is like vinyl that's just been stuck on. Don't think it would last to long on the front of my car!

They are all like that - I think they mean chrome coloured!
As long as you stick it well - ensuring enough adhesion to the grill (try and place it so the adhesive backing is against as much grill surface as possible), it should stay put.

i used a bit of black mastic to fix mine on and its been on for over two years !
if your going to fix it on in this weather id try and heat the grill and back of badge up a little just to aid it sticking .

No problem

Here is a pic of mine, most people seem to position it to the right and low down - but I prefer it higher. Each to their own etc


Sorry for the naf pic - just taken in the dark
