    I’m planning on removing the stingray and replacing with another crossed-flags logo in carbon flash to the rear hatch.

      Will almost certainly remove the front badge. Might remove the Stingray from the rear desk - will need to get the car and look at it for a while. Will probably leave the Corvette lettering on the back.

        I actually do NOT like it when those emblems are removed.....looks cheap, or defective, plain and incomplete. Its somewhat disrespectful to the heritage of the brand and I would never do it..... I would prefere more ..not less.. Im proud to own a corvette..and want it fully branded that way...to continue the legacy.

          I am not sure what Im going to do or when.

          i belive I will pull all three emblems off.

          traditionally I dont like emblems etc and if it would have been an option I would have chosen no emblems by the factory.

          if I were going to wrap the vehicle with a protective coating right away Id pull all the emblems before hand.

          thats how sure I am I am going to pull all the emblems eventually...

            Perhaps if I had a history of badge removal, I might. But, finally, when Corvette rises to challenge the best cars in the world, why would I be ashamed of driving a Corvette?

              Not remotely ashamed. I just think the nose looks a lot cleaner without the badge.

                I am leaving the front badge, but I removed the lettering and the stingray. I will have Identification on the rear in the form of the license plate........

                    Leaving them on as I want people to freak out and say - That's a Corvette? Plus possibly there will be less questions.
                    Although I did think about changing the back from C O R V E T T E to C H E V E T T E just to freak people out.

                        I don't see the option for ordering the Chrome Exterior Badge Package, that's what I did.

                          EYK - Chrome Exterior Badge Package . . . or, perhaps I misunderstood your remark.


                          There was this Long Breach Red preproduction coupe (that had been in camo) without any badging that looked particularly sharp - and aided by body color accents.

                            I was quoting John's post and didn't see the Chrome Exterior Badge Package on his list. Some might think black is the only way it comes. I know I didn't notice it until some time later after I had placed my original order.
