I loved the sleek lines of Codyallyn's Eos and thoughtI would have a go at removing the badges. Just used a hair dryer to get them warm, dental floss to pull the letters away, then some petrol to remove the sticky stuff and a dose of polish to finish.

It looks really nice de-badged, ads an air of mystery to the car for everyone who hasn't seen them before! :D

Glad you like. That was the part of the idea for folk to ask what it is. Also its a lot easier to polish without those bits of plastic catching the polish. Then having to pick it out again.

You going to try Lynne?

I still think understatement is better. but I do like the spoiler.

Looks like a US model am I correct?

I like the idea of de-badging! I was going to definitely take off the dealer badge when I get my EOS. Like someone said, they come off very easy with a hair dryer. I did that on my current car (2005 Civic).

I have to agree , debadging makes the rear of this car sooo much cleaner. Less than an hour after I got my Eos, the badges and dealer crap were gone. It also tickles me when people circle my car like vultures trying to figure out what it is.:D The funniest compliment I got was "Hi, I like your convertible passat."

Karlos,

Was just looking at your pics. The customisation makes the Eos look fantastic!

The chrome rims are something else.

Check eBay. Go to Auto Parts and Accessories and do a word search on "eos". You will find one for $219.00 pre-painted to match. I bought one and have been very happy. Can provide further info if you need it. :)

Had my EOS since October 06, if I de-badged now do you think there would be a noticeable difference in the paint shade?
Mine was purchased same date Oct 06 and there is not a problem as you can see.

Thanks for the feedback, I just finished removing the badges and the dealer sticker,

:D It looks great :D , very clean, people will really be wondering what my car is. Also I really like the clean look it gives.

Used a heat gun on low medium setting - the dental floss tip *thanks* and Goo-Gone to clean

Looks great, adds to the air of mystery, especially while the Eos is sill quite rare on the roads. The dental floss is good isn't it.

Cheers
