I have an 06 with 25k miles. The checkered flag part of the front emblem has faded to gray, all but one square. The car is garaged and covered. Is this a common problem? If it is I won't bother replacing it if the next one is going to fade out that quick. I would love some info on the best place to buy a new one. Also, how do you get these things off without damaging the paint? All help and advise is appreciated.

Some of the older emblems had "posts" on the backside that were inserted into holes in the hood and fastened with nuts, but many of the newer emblems are simply held on with adhesive tape. You can remove those by softening the adhesive with a little shot of 3M adhesive remover, and then "sawing" through it with some fishing line (after using the adhesive remover, it may just as easily peel off).
