    De-Badge or Non De-Bagde?.

    Got a free day tomorrow, and im thinking of removing the a3 badge and 1.8 badge off my boot. What do people think of this mod?.

    A hairdryer should do the trick right?. Then abit of cleaning and T-cut.

    De-Badge is good,post pics of your work...not sure about T-Cut though as its a bit harsh.

    It really should be called neat and tidy, but that's not neccessarily good in everyones eye. Personally, when I see badges removed it's because the owner wants to hide the fact it is originally a basic model. I suppose there's nothing wrong with that too, but I would be proud to show (if I had) a basic model with better alloys, etc looking fantasticly great.
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !

    Agree with that it is neat and tidy. Yeah its going to be a work in progress, alloys are a must soon, exhaust and a few other bits. Although i am tempted to sell it and replace it with the 1.8T as this is just the standard 1.8.
