Have you gotten rid of yours yet?

Mine was put on screwy and it was more of a paint patch thing that a real emblem. It rippled and needed to come off when I got it repainted.

If I had the chance to buy a brand new car that was pretty rare I'd hate to have some dealerships hoker badge messing with the overall look. I wonder if you can request that they do not put one on if you special order a car to be delivered there scratch

I've only seen one dealerships tage that actually goes perfect with the car. It the Imperial dealership and they have nice metal classy lettering. Goes great with the Chrysler 300, specially if you want to tell people it's a special edition. Chrysler 300 Imperial happy

So how nixed theirs?

Mine was from Dick Wilson Pontiac in Bowling Green, Oh. They applied their name as a decal in the same color as the pinstripe. Everything was removed within the month. evil

No front tags are required in Oklahoma. When I had the car repainted, I had the tag holder removed and the holes filled. The body lines flow so much smoother now. My dealer emblem was on the left corner of the trunk lid. I pulled it off the first week I had it. A little bug and tar remover will take any remaining glue off the trunk.

Mine is still on the back, It is from Giffre(sp?) in Illinois, but it doesn't look bad at all. It's in a nice cursive font and it's actually kinda stylish. But it will more than likely come off later.

There are about 4 or 5 different badges/decals I'd like to remove this summer.
The dealer emblem on the deck lid, and I believe 4 "Signature Edition" plastic emblems, inside and out.

Do you guys recommend warming the emblems first with maybe a hair dryer? As fragile as our paint tends to be, I'd really be pissed off if I pulled a big chunk of bright white diamond paint off the car.

Mine came off no problem, but I did do it during the summer time. Any remaining glue came off with some bug and tar remover. I thought the car looked soo much better after it was de-badged.

After I had my car painted, the painters didn't put the Riv lettering or supercharged emblem back on. I had the option and for the moment I wanted to see how it would be without them. I do miss having the Supercharged emblem, as ugly and 90's as it might be. Though I let the car speak for itself. At least people aren't calling it a Park Ave coupe anymore 3gears

I've never thought of the Supercharged emblem as being '90s or ugly. It's understated, and I like that. The script on the engine cover is a different matter. I'm glad that's gone!

My Riviera side emblems did break when I pulled them off. Maybe a blow dryer isn't a bad idea. Everyone's paint and climate conditions are unique. I don't want you to pull a section of paint off and start hatin' on me. shoot

it looks ok on a black Riv, but it's a small black bar, that's all. Are there any other models out there that have supercharged on the exterior? I'd put one on if there was a nice one out there to get.

Our SC badges are some of the best, imo. The Monte SSs put a large scripty badge on the sides, but I think it's way too much. You can kinda see it here:

Here's one that I kinda like:
