    My wife and i are going to de badge our car. But at the same time we think that a de badging should be like a right of passage into mods for our car. Are we the only ones that think that or is that about right??

    We kinda believe that de badging the car is like a right of passage. You de badge your car after you have moded it. You dont have to ever de badge it, but in some cases it does look rather nifty.

    I used a gas gun to remove my T to replace it with a T sport with red bits on it (you know the one).
    The gas gun is the type used by chefs to do meringues or whatever.
    Came of very easily after that took less than a minute to remove.
    Then to remove the rubbery outline i used my finger nails and rubbed the rest of with good old jizer!
    Such an easy job.

    Gas guns are quite cheap too I think you can get them in tk-max for real cheap.

    A Caramel Wheel on a drill is what you need, will strip the glue off without damaging the paintwork, you get them at paintshop supply places

    I used dental floss to remove all the badges including the Audi rings from the back of mine. Looks soo much better.

    Think it suits no badges smoother looking.

    No offence, each to their own.... I can't stand cars without makers badges on the back. Just looks bland and boring and as if something is missing- which it is!!!

    Why hide the fact its an Audi?????
