When I debadged mine took a heat gun to the logos to soften the adhesive then I took a piece of floss and used it as sort of a friction saw. Once you remove the logo if there is any adhesive residue use some goo gone

w-sol residue remover. spray it on and let it soak for a few minutes. keep spraying and let it soak and you should be able to peel it right off. safe to use on paint

I just used dental floss, and then peeled off the residue adhesive with my fingers.

I also used no heat, just floss, and then goo gone. Goo Gone will also take the nasty warning information off your sun visors - or at least it did mine. It expands the plastic a bit but it shrunk back down when it dried.

Some like the clean uncluttered look. Some think it the "European" thing to do as many Europeans do it.

I thought about it but I wanted to evangelize about the 335d so I swapped out gloss black as part of my de-chroming program.
