    I've never thought about it before but saw a few pics today of people who have done it and it does look a bit cleaner.

    The Vauxhall badge does not bother me one bit, so it isn't about that.

    No VX badge, leave vx220 script.

    Take the VX badge off, but keep the nice VX220 badge. They seem to be different styling anyways, also the small VX220 badge breaks up the rear nicely in my opinion. This opinion has no reflection on it being a Vauxhall.

    Whether the VX badge bothers you or not, the first thing people think when they see it missing is that it does bother you. Leave it on.

    I'd say it looks better with, looks very odd without the badges.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that.

    I don't think I'll take either off but it's nice to get some opinions. The small badge may come off eventually to be replaced with a new one as it looks slighty tarnished.

    Leave it on. Otherwise it suggests you don't like driving around in a Vauxhall ;)

    My car is a fractionally different shade of blue though.

    Nozzer - No gold badges, I don't drive a Subaru ;)

    I do like the rear end of the VX and it looks much better sans VX220. Leave the Vauxhall badge on though I do prefer the Opel badge if you can lay your hands on one.

    Mmm I'd leave them on, it does look a little bare at the back otherwise imo :)

    Yeah, I don't like it, some people have them partly because there is no sun visor.

    ahh thats your car is it? park at uni of essex on the grass by south courts everyday :D nice motor, i think taking the vauxhall badge off with the vx220 on looks the best.

    i'd be tempted to get rid of the vx220 badge but leave the centre VX badge.

    but i don't think it's that big a deal, certainly wouldn't totally debadge it. simply looks a bit wrong.
