    That's cool. I personally am a decal fiend. I like to do mods and put decals on things. That's mostly on my bike though, since it is a track bike. Click image for larger version.

    Yep. Some dealers put their badges on the car too, and I don't feel like advertising for free.

    I guess that might depend on how your experience was with the dealer. I like mine, as they have been very helpful plus their decal is pretty inconspicuous. I also don't mind people knowing that it's an STI.

    Looks good! I prefer debadged myself. I only left the STI logo on my trunk. The only bummer was...trying to remove 6 year old badges off at the time. I had a bit of paint scratching...but doesn't look bad though.

    BTW, It does look good. Just not my thing. Though with what mcdbrendan posted about dealer badges, I have seen some from the dealerships that I would take off because they look terrible!

    I like the debadged look too...I was going to take the subaru emblem off as well until I realized it was bolted on!

    You did a good job, looks great!

    and in the same light i dont mind people knowing mines a WRX. which is why i left that badge. but i didnt like the cluttered look with IMPREZA is big letters above the wrx badge. but it looked goofy just removing that by itself so i went ahead and took the rest of them off except wrx

    Wash wax and a debadge

    My STI is completely debadged. I probably would have left the STI for a little, but then I think I would have ultimately removed it anyway. I removed all but my WRX badge on my last car. The WRX symbol lasted only two days.

    ya i made the noob mistake and put two very small scratches in my paint because i pulled to hard on one side of some letters and pushed the corner into the paint. and before i knew it. little chips. not enough to notice at a glance but i know they are there so it bothers me. im going to touch them up with some dr color chip and hopefully you would have never even knew they were there when im done
