    SOA Badges - Who has Added Badges to Your WRX?

    Let me preface this post with one of my favorite movie sayings: "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" (from 1927: The Treasure of Sierra Madre)

    In my younger years...I use to shave all badges off of WRXs/STIs/EVOs

    I have owned 7 SUBIES, the most recent being my 2013 WRB WRX.

    SOA just sent me 10 badges, including a real nice badge displaying: "7th Subaru" The badge color is WRB

    Anyone get these badges and have applied to your WRX....pictures appreciated

    Who is a shaver...who is a badger?

    I have seen people put them on the dash. A couple of creative ideas is on the plastic area below the wipers so you can see it when you lift the hood or get a license plate frame for the rear and stick them on that. Also you can put them on your shifter area since we dont get a cool light up one like the STI you have an open area.

    Fishing Line, Dental Floss, Heat Gun, Hair Dryer, WD-40, Duck it...have used many methods to shave...(do NOT use a screwdriver)...what currently is the best new and improved 2013 method that has worked best for you all, to de-badge and get a nice clean ass with no junk in the trunk (borrowed quotes from previous posts: Kudos to them!)

    That being said, I'm liking the idea of the only badge on my trunk...being a SOA # 7 badge in WRB...

    My wife has those badges on her Outback. When they are brand new they look nice, but as time goes by, they yellow and look like garbage.

    I was gonna put on only the "Badge of Ownership" (In my case #7 (in WRB)) on the trunk...but without shaving all the other factory badges...it would look too cluttered...aka: Junk on my Trunk....like the idea of framing a picture of my WRX, having all 10 badges included...may place the larger Ownership badge someplace up underneath the hood...out of the heat...brings a while new perspective to this thread...what is your favorite badge or sticker under your hood?
