hair dryer or heat gun to warm up the goo under it, use a credit card, fishing line or dental floss and slide it behind the emblem until it comes off than use some goo gone to get the residue from the sticky stuff off

04-05 tails are really hard to get since so many people want them..check ebay every now and than or the forsale forums on this site. Putting in the 04-05s does require little modification to the wiring so if you arent up for that just get some 01-03 tails, they still look good....a lot better than what you have on now

Looks like my car when I got mine....had the carbon fiber altezza's and wheels. Took me a LOT longer to get rid of the tails since it didn't come with the stock ones. Mine has come a long way here and there over the past 2 years.


Good luck on it and keep it clean!
