Talking Badges...?

Hey everyone, I just wanted some opinions on this. How does everyone feel about the series badges on the back? Do you like it better with a clean look (without the badge) or should the badge be kept on, so people can see what model your drivin? I personally am thinking it would look better without it, but I wanted to see what everyone else thinks too. Let me know. Thanks.

I removed mine since I think it looks much better de-badged. Why should I care about what people think about what model I am driving. I couldn't care less about that.

Also, I was curious if anyone happened to have the unlimited 30 day carfax reports and felt like being nice and running a report for me.. if you can VIN number is WBABG1328VET05325. PM me with the report or just let me know the highlights of it. Thank you so much in advance.

Oh and thanks for your opinion on the badge or de-badge.

I have noticed that many of the cars in Germany are debadged. I've never asked a native why. Perhaps someone will know.

Some delete it from their orders so that the neighbors don't know how much they spent on the car, or how little. Others delete it to make the car easier to clean and wax, or because they prefer a cleaner, simpler look. People belonging to the very last school have been known to retrofit an electric trunk release in order to delete the trunk button.

I belong to the easier to clean and cleaner looks crowd(s).
