Debadged the car today, previously stuck a nasty MSport badge on the back and was the worse mistake, took a good 2 hours cleaning up the mess left from the 3M tape!

Learned my lesson and this time used a bit of heat, dental floss which was easy to lay hands on and a little Auto Glym to remove the grime, looks much better nice and clean :thumbup:

Love it. I was nervous when I debadged my 428i but man it looks SOOO much better IMO, especially removing the ugly xdrive logo!

I see it as an aesthetic choice - it was very noticeable in Europe that a large percentage of BMWs are debadged, and they do look better.
Then why not do the job properly and remove the BMW badge too?

Personally, I can't see the back of my car when I'm driving it so it could say "Kiss me quick!" for all I care.

For me I think they got the labels right for my M Sport.

You like them or you don't.

So they are just stuck on...no holes.

BTW...has the law ticked you off for non compliant No plate spacing?

... if you failed to buy the car you really wanted.
So true, I wanted a Mercedes AMG GT Roadster, but MB hasn't built it yet, so I'm stuck with an M6 for now. At least I can hide my shame by removing a cheap piece of plastic that was glued to back of my car for no reason other than shout "LOOK AT ME." :rolleyes:

Seriously, you got to admit it just looks better this way. :thumbup:

Not true at all. It's aesthetics. I bought exactly the car I wanted. Just like many people do. It's a matter of the lines on the rear of the car. The badges look out of sorts on the back of some of these cars.

Agree. Looks cleaner. Looks better. Looks just right. Good choice.

I just debadged my 435 this week, about 15 minutes after I picked it up. I've got to say that this was the toughest time that BMW model and X-drive badges have ever given me. Usually they come right off but this time they really made me work. The same with the airbag warning labels. I think BMW is using some new super adhesive lately.

Debadged 435ix. Just cuz you take off the badges doesn't mean you're trying to hide anything. On the contrary - this shows the lines better IMO
