Decided to order from another ebay chinese site - this time with the red stripe + a front grille trident badge so spot on for my sport GT model.
If any one wants the plain ones send me a PM

I got the red stripe ones too, how do you fit the quarter panel ones? Pull them off, clean off the glue and just stick the new ones on?

Gently - use plastic trim remover tool. They peel off but watch the paintwork. Colour cut gets off the sticky stuff and then clay it before sticking back the new one - make sure you get the arrow the right way and take a photo first to be sure it goes back in the same place. Wax it when you have finished - et voila!

What does it look like? Do you have a photo? I have a Chinese bonnet badge but not sure it is the one you want. You are welcome to it if it is the correct one.
Thanks, its the usual Oval Maserati logo badge, I cant remember the dimensions, but its marginally smaller than the GT, New Ghibli, Facelift QPV, etc...

I've just bought one of those for my 42, but I'm not sure how to get in to replace it (on the nose). I have seen something on here about drilling out the old one but I don't really want to do that. Anyone know how to get into it??
Just remove the front grill, and reach up to undo the nut on the back of the threaded screw you described above..
You will then need to use heat to soften the glued backing and a plastic credit card or something to "prise" the badge off...GENTLY ! :p

PS - be sensible with the heat( hair dryer or similar!?) ..the paint, lacquer and such . Not only can you scratch it, but it will tend to soften slightly too.the nose is plastic too remember. Dont be put off though. Its easy enough/...!
