    May be you already know if not - just bear in mind that using magnetic signs may ruin the paintwork ... At least that what happened with my transit - I haven t removed the small sign on the bonnet for about 5 months and today I discovered that the paint color has changed into a yellowish and there are a lot of rust dots too ...

    I had the same thing happen to one of the back doors on my berlingo so stopped using them.

    Not long got my vista print magnetic signs. Car is a bit wrecked n will run into ground so dont care to much of paint. But good tip to be raised regarding damage caused by these cheap but effective magnets, maybe not get them on my brand new merc lwb sprinter van. Oops think i started dreaming there:oops:

    few yrs ago my neighbour had magnetic signs on her driving school car. one day she washed her car and left the signs on. well the sun baked the water trapped behind the signs and the paint blistered up,big bubbles

    I've used them for years & never had a problem as yet.

    Just checked mine on my Transit. Yep,...yellow rectangle. It has come off but I'll not be putting the signs back on. Time for proper signage methinks......
