Hi all! I've asked for mine to be debadged. I also think it looks cleaner at the rear.

Yep, I am a de-badger too! Nothing to hide, just personally think the back looks better without them....

Dealer did ours, looks great de badged and apparently hot water poured over the lettering does the trick..!
Odd - if hot water makes the badges fall off, how are you supposed to wash it?!

Personally I prefer to leave badges on. I've de-badged a car for a friend before. Use a bit of thread to 'cut' through the glue behind the badge, then some tar remover to get rid of the sticky remains.

I'm in 2 minds over this.


At first, I didn't even realise you could de-badge without doing it yourself, then I wondered why someone would do it.


But now I've seen pics without the badges, especiallyaguycalleddb's</span>de-badged AMG, I think it looks really nice.


I would only do it for aesthetic reasons - I couldn't care less about the engine size - I'm driving a super cool Mercedes, as if I'd worry about what people think of the cc of my motor! I noticed the lines from the rear lights continue on to the bodywork, so having both sides of the car clean looks a bit nice!


As my car is due at the dealers in just over 2 weeks, I guess I am far too late to get them to address this at the factory, so can the dealer usually sort it out for you when it arrives their end?

Yes; arm yourself with a hair dryer ( NOT Your BOSCH Hot Air gun!!), Warm it up the letters GENTLY

Now take a bit of fishing line and CAREFULLY "saw" with it throught the glue/foam on the back of the badges, remove any remains of glue/foam with suitable solvent and maybe if needed give it a finishing polish with car wax
