Debadging: Should i?

I have already pulled the "SE" off with Goof off and it worked like a charm, but was wanting Others' input as to whether or not to do the same to the "Focus" badge, too? I personally like the clean look of no makers' mark, but I kinda feel like I may be subconsciously trying to hide the fact that I'm driving a Focus.....

I say take it off, a clean bum is a happy bum lol

Mine is Debaged and looooove it!



But as much as I like the clean look.
I will be re-badgeing it with the Euro ST emblem in a few weeks.

Debadge it dude. Stupid badges just add clutter. Looks much better without them.

You can debadge it.

Hell if you want to keep the badges but make the back end look a little different take them off and do a nice black paint on them and re add them. Kinda hides them while keeping them there.
