    De-badge pros and cons

    After waxing the ar$e of my Boxster S yesterday I started wondering if on my next car I should specify to have no badging on the back. From a practical point of view:
    - Bits snag on polishing cloths, so you have do be careful not to snap bits off the B and the S
    - The thing holds droplets of water underneath it
    - It's impossible to get the wax residue out from inside the letters without spending hours with a Q-Tip.



    So, does anyone have any tips for cleaning/waxing between the letters?

    Do you think the cars look odd without a rear badge?

    In my opinion, yes, it would look a little wierd

    Re: De-badge pros and cons

    The badge is mostly a vanity device, removing it is a good thing.

    Re: De-badge pros and cons

    I likey those stinking badges! They add to the looks.

    It think it is mostly about getting used to one look or the other.
    Personally I always take my badges off, as I prefer a ' clean' look.

    The other day my bro took the Gt3 badge off his car. I drove 3 days behind him so I had plenty of time to look at it. First I did not like it, and after the second day I got used to it and did find it to look great.
    The color of the car can also influence. On a white car it look less good without a badge then on a grey or yellow car.

    I think it looks better with than without - but I think certain models can carry it better than others.

    However, what about cleaning in and around the badge? What do you guys do?
