Some people de-badge to make the car look cleaner, wider, whatever. My rear badge was on at a slight angle - I took it off to put on a new one, but liked it better without a badge. (I know what I drive!) The badge is glued on the car - check the search button for keywords like "badge removal" and there are several discussions on how to do it. It is more a matter of personal taste than conforming, so look at some of the members pics under the performance section and see if you like it de-badged or not.
