I dont understand the reason to hide it. Looks much better with it on
Dropped both within 2 washes and polishes. It's a pain to get in the gaps with a cloth. Smooth is always better.

Took both badges off mine as soon as I bought the car. I find it so much easier to get it nice and clean now, as the badges retained dirt in all the little crevices that you can't easily polish. I always debadged my Subarus too, just prefer them to look 'clean'.

Its a Nissan GT-R, not a GT-R. Hiding the Nissan part inst fooling anyone.

You should be proud of its heritage
Can you not read...? I said my BMW badge was removed in Cardiff..!

And to quote what I previously said " I removed it as it LOOK's better in my and plenty of others on here's eyes.."

There's something very suspicious about your posts sunshine,

As pointed out earlier, it is a personal preference. It also happens to look better with the Nissan badge taken off.

You prefer it with the Nissan badge on. Many don't. Get over it. Besides, the standard wheels still have Nissan badges on them anyway

As far as the suspicions post, are you now going to suggest Im Flynn! I thought that was GODZIILLA
Let's forget the Nissan&BMW badges.....

Like the mods said "someone will slip up soon enough..!"

Have we just found our smoking gun..?????

What do you care what some one does with a badge? Why do YOU need to know, is it part of a school project? What car gets de-Badged the most? Answers on a postcard.

I'm voting VW, because I have the right to partyyyyy

If I wanted to make a accusation I would start a thread with it...

All I am saying is your very negative about posts. And it's like your chasing for a argument all the time ie having a sly dig at the mods, saying it looks wrong taking the Nissan badge off, not taking it off my BMW badge(not that it has anything to do with this thread) have you got parts you need to sell...?

If so start a thread about GT-R's and be positive,
you will soon hit the BIG FIVE O

I removed mine because it aids in aerodynamics and saves weight which gives me a far better power to weight ratio than you mere mortals with badges

This now means that when cars on curcuit I can eat a mcvites digestive which I would have had to refuse before so it's a winner all round : )

I quite like the missing Nissan badge look, but mine is still on. I like that also.

I am not fussed about the nissan/no nissan badge, when ever someone asks me what I drive I say a Nissan!

The more I look at it the more I think I will move the GTR badge back to the correct place.
