    So, for once in my trucks life, I took it to a car wash and the badge falls off. So I stop by my local dealership thinking it will be no big deal to get a new one. After talking with the service guy for a minute, he proceeds to tell me it will be $30+ to get a new one.

    My Response:

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, a $17K vehicles badge cannot stay on through a car wash, and the warranty wont do anything?

    Oh well, time to grab some fishing line and pull the rest of it off.

    After 2 hours of peeling adhesive off my truck, it has successfully been de-badged, and I'm liking the look of it minus the 2 pinholes to line up the badge correctly.

    I'm planning on getting the chevy badge that lights up and wire it to my 3rd brake light. Or getting a camouflage one to replace it.

    To end my rant, Seriously GM? A simple badge cannot stay on through a car wash? And Over $30 to get something fixed because it was either not properly affixed or had poor quality adhesive applied to it? Come on now.

    will do as soon as I get off work. Still gotta fill in the holes and do some dippin'. I will post up some progress pics as they come. I gotta wait until the weekend to start painting.

    Looks a little weird without the badge, but I like the lightup badge idea!

    Sorry that your rear badge fell off. But remember that this vehicle used to have a Saturn badge on the back of it.

    I was going to say put a Opel badge on the back!

    I feel like your Captiva is rejecting its identity
