I would consider that a sin.

It isn't an r32, so don't wear its badge.

I second....If you want an R32 pony up the cash and buy one.....you have a GTI, be proud of all its glory.

I do not however think it is a sin to change up the stock GTI plate to a Euro verision or other GTI badge.

Along these lines, the 4motion badge is off limits too IMO

I wouldn't do it... it's, for a lack of better words, tacky.

Get a Rabbit and re-badge it an R32. Add some chrome to the front bumper and you're set!

About the R32 badges, hell no! You might as well get a Lamborghini emblem on your GTI. Sinful, tacky, and just plain stupid.

The "R32Killer" badge? Okay, this is a better idea (if you can, in fact, take out an R32), but still not entirely appropriate. You just don't see enough rivalry between the GTI and the R32. "CivicSiKiller", "STiKiller", or even "Smokin'Rice" would be better choices IMO.

I once saw a Dodge Neon (pre SRT-4) with a sticker on the back window, "Import Killaz" or something like that. I thought that was pretty clever until I smoked him in my stock '87 Rx-7. Now that I have my GTI, I can't wait to embarrass the dumbass with that sticker on his Cobalt.

I agree, putting an R32 badge on a gti is just wrong!!!!

BUT!

I personally hate the badges that come stock on the MKVs so I put the 20th AE GTI badge w/ the bunny on the rear and removed the front GTI badge completely.

I'm still looking for the front 20th badge but haven't found one that was in the right price range. they're about $85-$90

Let your car heat up in the sun or heat the badge with a towel and clothes iron. When the adhesive is hot and soft you can peel the badge gently while running some sturdy fishing line or dental floss under it. Usually leaves a little residue but that's easy enough to deal with.

Ya I agree with everyone here about the false badges......Its not good to lie. Plus you can't be like "hey check out my R32" u would be dreading someone point out your car cuz its an R32 and then you have to explain that its all lies and you put all the money into fake badges...........anyways

I think a Rabbit badge is kosher, since the GTI did evolve from the Rabbit. The Playboy Bunny is pretty funny. Like a rabbit with style, and a little naughty too.

In the event that someone did want to change the badges, how do you remove the stock badges?
heat up the glue with a hair dryer and take some needle nose vise grips and rip each letter off.........if u dont have a steady hand use the floss
