To debadge or not?

What's everyone's opinion on debadging? I can't decide whether or not to debadge my 328is, I like the slick look, and everyone gives me mixed reactions, "it looks better" or "you shouldn't debadge a 328is.." *shrug*

What are your opinions?

Im not big on it. When I see it I think that someone bought a 323 and they are trying to pass off as something else, even though there are other clues on the car as to the model, but I still think that.

debadge

my car looks way nicer now that its debadged

makes the back look way cleaner... do what looks nicer. most people dont know the difference between a 323i and a m3, so dont worry

and if they do, they should be able to tell from the trim what model it is

I'd personally debadge it. In your case, do what YOU think is nicer! Who cares what anyone else thinks!

my opinion is i think you shouldn't debadge it. cause i know people with 318's who debadge it so people don't know it's a 318. so people may think yours is a 318 since it's debadged.
