And even cleaner when I get the new rear bumper and the facelift rear lights. And of course some nice exhaust.

My Ride: '01 325ci Sienna Red
I debadged the car the second day I got it. (about 45 days ago.) What pissed me off was when I saw it in the show room it just had 325ci. When I picked it up the next day they had the 325ci and on the otherside the dealer had to put on their badge as well. So I got rid of it cause it looked so nasty.

Now the car's got a clean backside and it looks so sweet.

I've heard of that kind of crap. How do dealers get away with that? I'd ask them how much they're going to be paying me per month to drive around advertising for them. Then I'd tell them to take it off the car immediately and if there's a single scratch or evidence that the badge was ever there, then the deal's off.

Debadged both the 323i & the 330Ci.. lot easier for cleaning purposes & just a 'cleaner' look, IMO

I'd like to debadge but I am afraid I will be labeled as a "poseur" since I have a 323Ci.

Debadging is cool. I spent about 10 minutes doing it one hot day last July.

guys, if u plan to debadge, do it sooner coz the longer u wait the harder it is to remove the outline of the sticker from the body due to oxidation of the exposed parts. It happened in my previous cars, so now all cars i buy are debadged.
