Any idea how difficult that would be to get off and how to do it? I won't bother if there's any chance I'd do damage.
Heat + Goo Gone (cheap) will remove just about anything. A picture might help us decide how to get rid of it. If it comes down to it, you can always go to the dealership and ask them to have it removed!

^^ Same process for removal of badges. Warm it up, peel it off. I've done this many times with pin stripes and dealer logos. Just go easy.....

That side view of your front end has me convinced that I need those headlights.

I just debadged the trunk of my 2010 and I did it at about 2-3pm on a 80-degree sunny day.

I barely had to lift up on the letters for them to come off

Then I used some wax on a microfiber towel to clean off the residue.

Upon delivery, I checked over the car for the usual things.... and found one spot on the passenger side that looks to be dirt in the paint. Up high of course, right where the hatch and rear pillar meet.
Dealer said to bring it by their body shop and they would look into getting it fixed. Other than that, there were no flaws I could find.
I drove about 45 miles (the long way) home. I 'averaged' 38.7 mpg. Awesome......

As far as I know the Red Candy and the Blue Candy are the only ones offered. They are available. I almost got the red, but it wasn't my first choice.

Crazy_Man,
I'm betting mine is on the same train as yours was. It's suppose to show up in Avon Park on Monday. Same color but is a Titanium.
