    I don't think it is too much tape, but the type you used. Look for something that is a slimmer and not cushiony (if that makes sense).

    I used the same 3M tape when I reinstalled mine and they do pop out a little bit but its barely noticeable and it doesnt bother me. But hey do make thinner tape out there you can get.

    ^ Yeah 3M makes a million different tapes and several for auto badging applications. OP, check online you will get a better variety than in the autoparts store.

    Just for some extra info for you. I have had mine on for about 2.5-3 years with that 3M tape and I've never had any issues or problems with them coming loose or breaking off. But I do remember that it was automotive 3M tape for like side moldings for vehicles so its a lot stronger then that office 3M tape.

    i used the automotive 3m, just wanted to see if there was anything a little thinner but just as strong out there that works good.
