The emblem or the bumper cover? If you mean emblem--I didn't. I destroyed it trying. It wasn't pretty!
i pulled my emblem off with ease.. wonder why yours was so hard

Yeah, the emblem. The red center on mine is cracked with the top of it missing. I got a replacement from Ed Morad. I haven't put a lot of effort into it yet trying to get the old one off. I don't care if the emblem breaks...I just don't want to mark up the cover. Maybe a little bit of heat?

Not a problem.

So what do you guys think? Emblem or no?

i think sticking on a full emblem would look odd, but maybe try tossing on a decal that is the right size.. that might look better

That'* kind of what I was thinking too. I debadged the car when I first got it so I guess adding a badge would go against that.

If your goal is to de-badge it, I guess that'* your answer. If not, you can check out places like http://www.grafxwerks.com/ that have overlays for the dart that could be used instead.
