I've got a GT TDI 110 and am toying with the idea of just removing the TDI but I thought I'd ask what you lot thought?

and why would people shake their heads? :)

I don't have GT infront of the TDI although I have to say, I did think about it at one point but decided the stealth look might be the way forward

I debadged mine a few weeks back - It really does look so much better.

Still trying to decided whether or not to go Cage style, or just put my colour coded badge back on.

I'm not talking about removing the VW badge although I'd like to know how people colour code their VW badges - just with touch up paint?

You buy cans of spray from a vw stealer.

A good guide here : Clicky

Well worth doing, costs about ?10-?20, and makes a nice difference.

colour coded badge changes it quite a bit and then the next step further is completey de-badged. would like to do it but i think its gonna be too much work for me

In the minority here but I say leave them on. Mine has GT TDI on (from previous owner) and thought about removing T and moving G = GTDI. Anyhoo each to their own [^]

I also go with the minority, leave it as it is. I bought my car as an ex demo and it has the correct GTI badging but also all red TDI badge just below, I was going to remove this and leave the standard badging but I enjoy advertising the fact that a diesel just wasted em.

Be proud of your car[:D]

I've taken off the GOLF and the TDI.

Did you know it spells OLD GIT

I done the same, gone for the smooth look.[8D]
