I wanted to revisit the VW Conti, and happened upon this:
In Europe, at least Germany, I believe you can order your car de-badged. My rental 2009 VW Golf TDI was de-badged. I seriously doubt the previous renter went through that trouble.cwerdna wrote:I've definitely heard of debadging outside Mercedes or German car circles.DarthPuppy wrote: I'm also on a Mercedes forum. That is the only spot where I've encountered stories of debadging or 'posing'.
Actually, it's Silvia. It's particularly popular with the "JDM' crowd.I've also seen some "purists" replace their badges with the names their vehicle would sell with in Japan. Memory foggy on this but I think I've seen some US Infinti G35's changed to Nissan Skyline and some Nissan 240SX changed to Nissan Sylvia.

here is a random shot that shows what it looks like with the badges and mud flaps gone
