Not that mine had any lettering other than the "focus", as its an 07 S but I would have taken that off too. Less is more! If I had or ever get an SVT, I would debadge that too.

I've made a number of external mods on my car. Conservative, I wanted the European rally car look. I really like it when another driver asks, "What is that?". It only gets better when I tell them it's a Focus, and the response is, "You're kidding!".

I took everything off my trunk. It's black and looks good clean, Unfortunately it's an "early" 2008 and the side badges have rear clips or they would have "fallen" off too.
