Remove Subaru/WRX badges?

I have a black WRX. I guess I am trying to go for that "clean, dark" look. I have windows tinted, and nothin on my car at all. I just like for my cars to look clean. Should I remove the Subaru/WRX badges on the trunk lid? I know for one thing it would be easier to clean the trunk without having to edge around them, but overall, what do you guys think?

When you take off the back badges I think it leaves too open of a space on the trunk. The thing just looks way too empty for my liking.

There won't be any holes, the badges are glued on... well not really glued on either, more like 2 sided tape. Nice misinformation there though.

No man they are like glued on. You take dental floss and get the badges off then take a glue gun and heat up the glue by just putting the gun close, not touching it and wipe the glue off with Goo Gone. Simple as that.

I removed mine. took 15 minutes. make sure you wax the area again after you remove them. There are no holes to be filled. I removed the dealer sticker at the same time, and there was a big nasty crack in the paint under it. The crack is about an inch long and the sticker was placed perfectly to cover it up. It kinda pissed me off, this is my first brand new car.

Debadged

I as well own a black dubrx, I just took off the SUBARU letters, and left the wrx impreza badge, i'm looking to buy IMPREZA silver letters that match the subaru letters to replace. I think that would be sick.

I have a black WRX and i removed both the Subaru badging as well as the WRX badge. If you dont know what im driving, then you dont need to know!! I think it looks A LOT better without both of the badges. Just my 2 cents!

I took my "SUBARU" off but left the WRX. Looked too empty without the WRX.

My wagon is de-badged and I have to say that people are a lot less afraid to race when your car does not say WRX on it. (although people recognize sedans a lot more than wagons)
