I was thinking about debadging the back of my car. Here are some quick photoshop pics of what it would look like. What does everyone think?




PS- I realize my photoshop skills aren't what they once were. :wink:

I voted for "Badge" simply because the back end looked to bland. Now, had you left the Mazda symbol on the tail and only removed the "Mazda 3" emblem, I think that would look nice.

I find the car with it's badges just perfect. Not to much and enough to not make the back kinda dull looking.

I like the sleek look. Without the badges, and with a badgeless grill, noone would know wth your driving.

I used to get compliments on my Jetta looking like an Audi. Retards... still had the BIG ass VW emblem in the back.

Either or looks nice. I don't like it though with any badges at all. I would definitely leave the "Mazda emblem" on, otherwise it would look too bland.

I do agree by saying the mazda symbol is a little big i was thinking about debadging my 3 too but u see its velocity red and the crome doesnt really go with it, but i have been lookin into it but the mazda symbol has two holes where its at, and "so the say" that the mazda has two also and the 3 doesnt. OK i believe the mazda symbol does but the mazda lettering and the 3 is just that thick foam. Well i thought about it and wanted to but thats whats holding me back damn holes. :x anybody care to say different be my guest i want to know more about it.

I want to put one of those Mazda symbols on a necklace! :D

BLING BLING!




This is what happens when your dealer surprises you and tells you that you're getting your 3 sooner than you had expected...(not enough sleep...over excitement)...and you have to go to work the next day because you have an important meeting!

WiseYoda,

Can you photoshop it so only the Mazda is gone. I want to see if it would look good with just the "3" there. :)
oh... now you are pushing your luck :wink:

I also think the mazda badge is way too big, i think it'll look pretty good without it, but it looks incomplete without the Mazda3 on it.

The rear badge is something i would never change. It adds so much style. I like its oversized chrome presence. Its like "BAM I GOT A MAZDA 3 AND YOU WANT ONE"
