DeBadge or Don't DeBadge

Coming from German cars, back to GM. With my VW Passat, an Audi, a BMW, the style was, and still is to a large degree, to debadge. What's the Camaro fashion?

I'm just glad the word Camaro isn't on the back of the car. If it it was it definitely would have been coming off.

Ive never understood taking off badges. I think it looks crappy. I can see on somethings they do get excessive and what now. But a camaro is a camaro it deserves to have it said on the side.

The badges tell the world what you have (or don't have)...those who have the "SS" have something very special and they want to keep it that way.

You can definitely do what you want, but I've never understood the point of debadging. It always looks... stupid... to me. Why buy a car if you don't want people to know what it is?

I may modify the bowtie, but in the long run, it stays.

Does anyone know if there are aftermarket SS badges for the very front like the 69's? I like the chevy badge and think I will leave mine as is, except if a SS badge comes out for the front. Where can you get these black bowties???

Im sure this one will come out. Im not into changing but if the SS Grill comes out like this I would do it. How would they do it, would SS be silver and SS/RS be red. In Aftermarket I would imagine it could be any color. Bet your butt this will be coming out, but plan on 500-1000 for a grill since badges arent able to be popped in and out like they used to.

Where do you get these special liscence plate holders? I haven't looked yet and was curious if any one had a quick answer?

The only badges that I would remove are the little gm tags that they put on everything. It looks horrible to me. The rest of the badges will stay on for me.
