    How many of you have De-Badged your cars?

    I was thinking of taking off the 2.5 TDI and the A4 and just leaving the Audi 4 rings logo on the boot lid,

    What are your views and do you have any pics of your De-Badged ride ?

    I use a kettle of hot water and just my finger nails to get underneath the badges then peel, at least you cant scratch anything doing it like that.

    I did mine, removed A4 and 2.5TDi and just left quattro.

    Not the best before and after as I was midway through fitting the number plate led's.

    For me, it's easier to polish the car without having to deal with the badges getting the way.

    S'pose it's just down to personal choice, I happen to think it looks a bit better without badges......probably very similar discussions around having a private plate......no real benefit, but a personal choice

    It's quite funny as I prefer a debadged rear end on a car as makes it look a lot cleaner and clutter free, yet since having my S4 I've not had the guts to remove the S4 badge.

    I've removed mine also, all but the Audi rings. I don't think i've got any pics though, sorry. Looks very much like James's though...except for I don't have a quattro badge, and my paint work isn't in as good condition :)

    I love the blank (no dealer info etc) number plates too. Had the gb ones taken off.

    Liking that car too dude, looks great. I am wanting sport wheels for mine. Hopefully this next year. Can't be bothered going bigger, too much cost lol. :)

    And I'm also not a fan of the "Audi" badge turkster. Much prefer the four rings.

    How does your number plate fix on to the boot?
    What about the lights, buttons, glass, cable ties, boot trim.
    Its all holes in the boot.


    I did cut two massive holes in mine to fit a rear blind though. :)

    I haven't got any I don't think..... On my avant the number plate was originally held on by a captured plastic bolt I think, I just glue them nowadays.

    I hope the red brake light rings was a joke....

    Them Plastic bolts, went through the boot skin, through a hole..............A look a hole!! :)

    It was a little bit of a joke but mainly curiosity to see if any one has actually done it.

    Fair play, I thought they were captured. Either way, it's different for a hole to come galvanized and painted from the factory than it is for me to try and drill one at home ...
