I had been replacing the hood badge on my 2000 9-3 every couple of years as the paint would eventually flake off. Two years ago, I bought a new badge and also purchased these emblem armor protectors for the front and rear badge. Applied them and they are still going strong today. You have to look closely to even see they are there and there is no sign of them coming loose or the badge paint fading beneath them. Not sure what the problem was the person had who experienced bad results, but they...
Invested in "badge armor" for both my hood and trunk emblems (9-3 sedan). These lasted only 10 months before coming loose, prying away the Saab emblem underneath. Would be more than willing to try again, but these are not a "cure all" solution as they are made out to be.
..use these and you won't have to invest in emblems for nearly the life of your car...well worth it to me
Well worth the investment!
Worth the investment in my opinion..no more faded,peeling,emblems...now I just need to get some for my center caps
