Almost de-badged back of my car and one when it was new with too many badges. With the 'S' badge, it would have been just too crowded.

Thanku! I had it earlier. But I removed it to get full coat through 3M.

The de-badged Aspire does looks better than the stock condition. I personally feel that the rear of the Aspire is really crowded and will myself go the debadging route soon.
Just a slight observation. Isn't the 'Aspire' badge too far from the corner? Personally I would like it to be at a little left, maybe where the 'Figo' badge was placed.

Sir, your Creta looks dope and after the removal of those extra badges, it does look sleek.

On a side note, how difficult is it to remove the left over glue from the paint if we plan to do it ourselves? I was planning to use WD-40 to get rid of the glue residue after I take off the badges.

Once the badges were removed, we used the heat gun to loosen out the glue from the surface and used a bit of 100% Iso Propyl Alcohol (IPA) to further loosen the glue & a bit of Abro Bug & Tar remover spray to get rid of the glue from the body surface.

WD-40 didn't work as good as IPA in my case. Maybe in a 'new car', the situation would be different.
