Indeed a very clean behind. Really feeling tempted to do it on my Dzire.

Your alloys are really drool worthy. Looks really good on the car.

Yes they are from New Swift Z, and yes, they look very good on the dzire esp in silver. But this thread was about debadging

Looking at your debadged rides, even I am tempted to remove that horrendous "VOLKSWAGEN" badging from the left side of the boot and shift the "POLO" badge to the left like Pre- Oct '10. However I am clueless as to how to rebadge it. People abroad have used 3m double sided 9088 adhesive tape and others the Gorilla badge glue. I doubt I will be able to procure any of these products here easily. So what are my alternatives? Will something like fevikwik spare the paint and hold well the heat and moisture?

The Chevy bow tie logo is fixed with reference to two locating holes. So removing it will expose the holes. That is why I have left the logo.
More over the bow tie logo on Beat & Cruze are very good quality ones

I have done it, it comes off pretty easily , just use dental floss or string and then some solvent to remove the gum residue.

But the problem is rebadging it, relocating and reapplying the badge from the right side to the left

Ah I didn't bother with that , just removed the volkswagen so now it just says Polo on the right.

I think the service center would have new badges you can get them to apply it on the left

I have got the 3M double-side tape(DST) that you have mentioned above.
Its available in many car accessories shop...I got it from Hot tracks, Richmond road (Victoria road).
One small roll cost me around Rs100/- IIRC

Also the A.S.S will do it I know, Because:

When I debadged my car and after that when the service was due, The SA during the initial form-filling exercise saw no badges and told me "Sir, seems some culprit has removed the badges, I'll put new ones"
Then I told that him that the culprit was none other than me

If you don't want to take chances, buy the DST and then debadge.

Thanks a lot! Found it on ebay, 258/- for a 3 meter roll!
