I will debadge my whole Camaro minus the bowtie in the grill, its easy to pull off the emblems and clean the glue off with gas, I did my Trailblazer this way.

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 might remove mine only because I am planning on completely debadging my Camaro.

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.
