I've finally finished my debadge process. Removed all SUBARU letters, WRX and Impreza logos. Here's what it looks like.




Thank you all who provided the info, greatly appreciated it.

how bad would it be to remove them after 2 years of paint abuse?

instead of goo gone and other stuff, try using wd40--works great.

For you WRX owners: Is the WRX and IMPREZA both one badge together like on the RS? Or are they 2 seperate pieces?

I debadged my RS and am looking for the IMPREZA part only I'll send ya a few bux for you trouble.

Any one?

I used lighter fluid to get the excess stickies off, worked great. I left the WRX, everytime I wash or wax it I rethink that decision.

Looks so sweet when there is no badging.

Then when the officer pulls you over he cant tell either.. Tell him its a toyote or something and a fake name viola your free.

Well not really but would be sweet if it worked.

Talking Rear trunk de-badging

I read a lot about this and didn't see anyone mention this. So I though I would through in my two cents. Some poeple had problems getting the glue of the trunck lid. After getting the letter off with the fishing line keep the hair dryer on the left over glue and keep it warm and role it off with your finger.....worked like a charm.

yeah, i did it to the wrx and i'll do the subaru emblem next week. my problem was, it's still january in chicago and it was chilly. so after heating it up and rolling most of it off, i took some goo gone and got the rest of the stuff off. it also helped with the tire skid mark on my hood- long story.

i used a hair dryer, and pretty much just 'rolled' the sticky stuff
off. i also used some wd40, but that just made my trunk and me
a mess.

also, i used a screwdriver to get the letters off - bad idea. ended
up w/ 3 small scratches, at least they are barely noticeable...

I live in florida. I just let my car sit in the sun and then just peeled it off. Worked like a charm, then I just used some degreaser from a detail shop and the glue just fell off. Easy as pie!

Well don't I feel dumb now, Am I hearing that the WRX/and subie emblem are JUST glued on? - Not pinned in like american cars?

I just assumed they were pinned in like they are with chevy or fords which would leave small holes in the trunk.

Be careful!, my badges were installed to soon after the clear coat was sprayed and when they were removed it “pulled” some of the clear off with them……… trunk lid had to be repainted. I’ve been doing this for years and never had a problem until now so be careful, not all Rex’s are created equal.

Do you need to polish the trunk afterward, or is the Goo Gone enough?

I debadged my RS last night. Used a hair dryer and an old gift card (credit card), worked well. The excess glue i took off w/ goo gone, then I took my wash mitt w/ car soap and water and washed the area and then waxed it. Looks purty

3m adhesive remover is your friend! Napa carries it usually. Just soak any sticky crap in it and it can pretty much just wipe it away. That's what i used to debadge my trunk..

some people debadge just so they don't have to work around
the "subaru" letters when waxing/polishing the car...haha

once i saw what it looked like, i did mine as well. it's nothing
special, but does give it a "clean" look, methinks. i left the
impreza/wrx pieces on, too.

(someone on here reordered the letters to spell U R A B U S)
