    Did mine a couple of months ago also took off the fr badge the s for seat badge would have gone too if it had not been part of the boot latch.

    Looks better smoothed out.

    I'm thinking of blacking the seat badge

    I don’t see the point

    to me looks like its been in a shunt and the bodyshop couldn’t be bothered to source the correct badge

    I just prefer the appearance of less badges and I’ve never been a massive fan of the badge under the S and even VW are starting to do it now.

    Still in two minds about removing my LEON lettering, because it's centered it doesn't mess with my OCD as much haha. Plus it's got black decals on it instead of fully black, which i also like the look of.

    You mean like this? https://www.carshop.co.uk/used-car/SEAT/LEON/YA18DKD

    I was going to look at this car when I bought mine a few weeks back and didn't bother after seeing the awful rear Leon badge. Something has gone off there.

    I guess going badgeless is all down to personal preference. I like the look and have done it to my last few cars. It also make polishing the area a lot easier as well.

    Yer my ocd liked it was centred but I just don’t like the look in general. Thing is if I didn’t have the AMD badge I wouldn’t have done it as it wouldn’t have balanced. As it’s been said it’s all personal taste when it comes to mods on cars.

    I just used a hair dryer to heat the badge n then prised it off slowly using fingers. Once it’s off I washed polished the area and used a soft cutting polish to get any residue glue off.

    I have been thinking about removing mine however I have a red car and with it being a few years old now I'm scared of it leaving an outline of a slightly different shade of red.

    I know paint on cars has come a long way but red is always the worse at weathering over the years.

    It is all personal preference. I prefer the look myself without the badge, I did the same on my octavia, but this time I have left the FR badge. It is far easier to polish not having to go in and out the LEON badge

    Mine as you can see is red no problems with marks kettle of boiling water pour over badges to loosen glue and mine came off by pulling it off by hand then a touch of polish. IMG_20191030_152246.jpg
