Damn, with the way the new badge is on the car, debadging just it makes super clean!
Yea. The main rear one is a little bit of a pain because of the sharp edges of the emblem and the angle you have to get at. Otherwise extremely easy and very clean outcome. Very happy to see there wasn’t any alignment holes behind the emblems.

Or I’ll do what I did in the last one and put all carbon fiber badges Definitely looks better darker or not there at all.

You can debadge a '21 model but it'll have that crater where the stock badge would be. And I believe they also have holes in the hood for guide pegs on the badge.

@Skypier
I'm a bit late but to answer your question, they always paint and clear coat the car first before applying the badge from factory so there will always be paint underneath it like the rest of the body.

How to debadge? Is their paint behind it or?
Apply light heat (blow dryer for a few seconds) and then fishing line/monofilament. Use a paint safe adhesive remover to get the rest of the stuff stuck on and you’ll be good to go.
