Agreed! I think debadging cleans up the rear end quite a bit. Plus, if someone really cares what model and trim level your car is, they're probably a car nerd like most of the people on this forum and would know all that from other details on the car. When I had a Civic Si sedan, I took all of the badges off (including those awful VTEC stickers on the rear doors), and hardly anyone could tell it was an Si. Sleeper. Loved it.

I was in bed last night and couldn't take the thought of waxing around those sharp badges one more time. So I get out of bed at 11:30. Grabbed the heat gun and rubbing alcohol. Warmed the badge, and with a plastic trim remover, I scraped it right off. Warmed the left over glue, and hit it with the alcohol. Came off spotless and without a trace, to the eye, and touch.

I think it makes the car look a lot classier than it really is. Hello Audi A3

^looks really good! Just out of curiosity, would a blow dryer work, or does it not get hot enough?

Thanks!

I've done it on previous cars without any heat. You just might have to use Goo Gone to get the rest of the adhesive off. I've also heard of using dental floss to sort of saw through the double-sided foam tape they usually use to stick the badges on?

Heat helps, but not at all required. A hair blow dryer would work, just take a little longer. The sooner you pull it off the better. The longer it sits, the more it sets on the paint.

Used a hair dryer today for just a few seconds and they came right off.
Much prefer this look. Thanks to the folks on this forum. May never have tried it otherwise.

I would love to get Titanium headlights and fog light surrounds for our SE. I wonder if it would be plug and play. IMHO black would work much better then chrome.
