I see my front badge is getting ready for putting gold fish in again, this will be the third its had,you would think with a fault like this they would have improved them, but no you just get another of the same.

That is the Koreans for you. I am driving with a bubble in mine, when it gets to summer (warmer weather) hopefully, I intend to take mine off, clean the interior foil and spray paint it!

It's the bow tie on the front grill, they start off totally gold and consist of a plastic front with a laminated gold foil behind it. Water gets in and bubbles appear the gold goes all manky and starts to look awful as I say I'm onto my third.

It just seems to be the front ones that go.
It is not too bad now if you can get the replacements for a tenner from Korea, they are just self adhesive. Edited by: Big Al

My front bow tie is bubbled, and you can see water moving behindthe foilafter washing the car. The new ones seem to have a coloured reflective freznel behind the front plastic, so I have ordered one of those.
