to me it definitely clicks very well. also there is no silver garnish above the number plate. keep that in mind. remove all the chrome.

how does she look with a black logo?

Can anyone please suggest how to take off those irritating stickers from the windscreens? Scraping them off is time consuming, and I'm scared I'll end up scratching the glass.

SS-Traveller everybody uses a blade to scrape off a major part and then use petrol to clean the glue. you just have to be a little careful not to press the blade too hard on the surface.

the black SX4 looks too bare.it looks good without the maruti suzuki and Sx4 badge but it definitely needs the Suzuki Logo.

@SS-Traveller check this out http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...indshield.html (How to remove sticker stains from windshield?)

exactly. painting it black will actually make it less obvious,so much that people might never notice, just like you have

Ok, that makes it easier!
How does it look close up, can you tell that theres tape on it? Painting it would be a bit more complicated sure, but wouldnt it look a little better than tape?
Not asking to say its look bad, but just wondering how it would close up.
