Default To De-Badge, or Not to De-Badge, That is the question.

should I debadge, or should i not? I like people looking and saying holy ****, it IS supercharged!, and becuase i like they way the SSEi symbols are styled, but i think i might like the smoother lines and the more sleeper-ish-ness to a debadged car, let them figure it out when they hear the whine and get smoked. also, i already took the back one off, and i like it off.

It'* really just a personal preference. I personally love the badges for the classic look and the detail in color matching your car. (i.e. my car is purple and badges are accented in purple) De-badging makes it a little more of a sleeper, yes, but c'mon...it'* a bonneville, it'* already a sleeper.
