I could think of many positives to doing it, such as the smooth look, easier to polish etc ..... but was worried that it may have effects when/if i come around to selling ... some pictures would be good to other fiestas in the Mk6 facelift model

and i might be wrong, but if you kept the badges couldn't they be put back on for when it comes time to sell on?

lol, look at all the fords in that picture Feel the love man!!!
Again not a fiesta but you can see from my focus, removing the back and wing badges makes for a smoother look

I'v never considered debadging but it might look silly on mine
My fear also
Could always stick them back on if unhappy i suppose .....

It does make the back end look a little tidy, but if you are planning on doing it BE CAREFULL NOT TO SCRATCH THE BODYWORK!! I did it by accident although trying to take my time, but clumsyness got the better of me.
Just ge a hair dryer (not too hot otherwise you could damage the paint) and a small thin screwdriver with a bit of masking tape around it to avoid getting the sharp bits near the bodywork. You will need to re-tape the screwdriver at some point too.
If your worried about the time it may come to selling, you can easily just stick them back on too (or if you dont like it lol).
Im sure someone else has said this in their post, but I didn't really look through it sorry if im repeating what someone else already said or if you know this already. Im just happy to try and help out
May try it again soon though

If so was this a lot of work?
Another option i have thought of is to go with the option in the "Gel badge overlays" forum and go with the black to blend in with the front, dont think it would be as easy blending in the back though.

I debadged my mk 5 a few weeks ago and im much happier with how it looks, all nice and smooth. Also ordered some carbon gel overlays for the front, back and the steering wheel, still waiting on them to come though. I'd definately recommend de badging to any one though
No way dude! The more badges the better! Nothing better than badging your car up big-time-stylee!
