I have always made the dealer remove decals/badges I didn't want as part of the sale. My theory is if everyone made the dealers take them off for free, such as myself, the dealers would start pushing back against GM for putting the dumb things on.

When I was a kid my Mom had the dealer remove their emblem from the truck lid of her new Thunderbird, they scratched the area all up. If you want something done right do it yourself IMO.

I agree. I like having the 'CAMARO' and 'SS' on the vehicle personally. I've never liked the look of a vehicle with no badging whatsoever.

Why do you guys want to take them off? If you've ever seen Fast and the Furious, you will know that badges add horsepower and make cars very fast.

I didn't remember it being placed right there. That actually looks pretty good. I changed my mind. Mine is staying.

I remove the chiclets, but all the other badges stay. Like on the Cobalt I just removed those but kept Cobalt, SS, and the bowties.

I will definably remove the bowtie on the SS and replace it with shiny SS badges

How about a new poll to see if we can get GM to color match the center of the badge to the color of the body?? NOOOOO?? Sorry, I've been looking at too many polls today...nevermind

I'm fine with the little emblem thingy you can barely see.

How hard do you think it would be to put a SS badge where the chevy badge is on the grille? Not that i dont like chevy. just think it looks better, and everyone who knows anything (or cares), will know that your camaro is certainly a chevy.

Not hard at all if the SS emblem you get has studs that match the ones on the Bowtie. There will be two little studs and 10mm nuts holding it on from the back (most likely). Trust me, the aftermarket will come out with a badge to fit.

I am planning on debaging the car and repacing the front bowtie with an "SS" badge.

Proud GM owner -- mine will stay.

Bowtie will be replaced with a silver SS -- as it should be IMO.
