    In my experience whatever you have right now you want the opposite. Example; de-badged mine, now I want it back- in black.

    Sweet! That's what I hope to do with mine. Keep people guessing, specially since I have quad mufflers lol. Any BMW enthusiast will know what it is though.

    I never keep badges ( well, I do keep them around in the back of a drawer somewhere )

    I usually de-badge the same day I get the car and tints are on within 3 days

    e92. What method did you use to debadge it? heat gun+floss or fishing line+adhesive remover? or goo gone+floss or fishing line? What do yo think is the easiest method?

    I'm mixed on this one.
    I think there's good arguments both ways on this.
    Personally, I enjoy seeing my AMG badge on my car, it reminds me why I have such a big hole in my walletClick here to enlarge

    I know it's very common in Europe to debadge high line cars like AMG and M, but I will keep mine--each their own.
    The more the car is modded, the less important the badging IMO.

    Actually, maybe I would debadge an M car so everyone would not assume I was a prickClick here to enlarge--just kidding guysClick here to enlarge

    I need that M3 badge on there or else I would feel like a lowly regular 3 series driver.

    See, it's true.

    Keep it, no matter what it is. It shows you aren't a poser.

    OT, I really hate to see people put an M or AMG badge on their cars, check this. It's a 630i !

    Putting an M badge on a non-M is a pet peeve of mine.

    If i had an M or AMG I would keep it on, because it is a dedicated car and the badge is pimp, but on a reg car that is modded, i would debadge, but thats just me/ and my cars are always modded, even when i think i wont, so anyone thinking, "oh its just a 335,m3 or amg.." is gonna get a surprise when its a modded one and can hold its own..
