De badged my isuzu and was much happier without so much writing all over it. The Nav doesn't seem too bad though.


Still, dental floss and some gentle alcohol should remedy yours :)

When buying a used car, I always assume one with no badges on has been cheaply repainted. FWIW.

I'd agree but the Isuzu badges had a bad habit of deteriorating and looking really scabby, so for those it isn't uncommon. Give it a couple of years to see how the Nav ones handle sunlight and UK weather and it will become apparent if they're made better or if they will also need culling :)

Everyone has their own style. I like the look, especially on cars like the Nav where the factory got a bit badge-happy (our 2015-2017 NP300s have the round Nissan logo, Navara, NP300, and the grade badge (ST, RX etc). It’s very cluttered.

I feel sorry for pickup designers though because they do all look pretty similar from behind - the D40’s big plastic block is probably the most distinctive design feature. That’s why they go for lots of badges or huge RANGER/ISUZU/TOYOTA text.

Yes debadge takes minutes.

I took everything off the back of mine. Hairdryer, dental floss to act as cheese wire, then the adhesive cleans off with meths. A nice polish afterward helps too.

I hate litter on the back of all cars.. I have rebadged everything I’ve ever owned.

It’s lately become a thing for dealers here to permanently apply their name as a decal above the Nissan badge, like “Sydney Nissan” where the Sydney is added.

They can even get special registration plates that have the dealership name embossed on the plate in lieu of the normal state slogan! Yuk!

I’ve taken to specifying in contracts that no advertisements, stickers or badges are to be displayed on the vehicle.
