Badge or hood ornament? Or r they the same? Mine came off after an accident and is now in 3 pieces. At first I liked it, but now I am thinking of putting it back on. Mostly just so there is the ram on my car than anything, I feel like it has no make now. Just goes by Intrepid. Try it, not that bad to take it off or put it on.

I'd say debadge the bitch.

Intrepids have such nice flowing lines, both first and second gen, that badges just look tacky. They're an insult to the beautiful lines of your car.

silver would look awesome being de-moulded, too.

From your pic there it doesn't look debadged!

Yes, the hood ornament makes the car look a little strange. I removed my medallion (ram head to you americans) and the car looks MUCH nicer IMO. If you've ever seen the Honda's without the front H symbol, think how much nicer they look without it...same deal here. If I DIDN'T own an R/T, I'd debadge the whole car, but since I do, just the hood emblem is fine for me

I wanted to debadge my trep but my girlfriend convinced me to spraypaint them red instead. They look pretty good with a black car. Check out my gallery. I saw a pic of the trunk debadged and I don't like it but thats just my opinion. The doors look good though.

wow you went crazy with that red paint! personnally, i dont like any of the interior stuff painted. reminds me of some 16 year old pulling panels off his honda to spray paint them yellow but to each his own.

I'm thinking of a 'partial-debadge'. Basically, I would remove the INTREPID from the trunk and the rams head from the hood. The INTREPID on the trunk annoys the shit out of me when washing - it's a pain to get soap / wax / whatever out from behind the letters!

Us first genners don't even have an "Intrepid" badge.. it's just painted on the plastic. I only have two pentastars and one "Chrysler" badge on my car. I never understood the concept of debadging; I am proud to have people know what kind of car I'm driving.
Hey if you do debadge it can you send me the letters?

Avenger I know this picture shows that, but hell this isn't even my car! Looks exactly like it, until I of course get my damn digital camera back from my Ex-Wife. Yuck poo!

But yeah, that car is the spitting image of mine, but badged.

actually that is the only badging that still remains on my car, I don't like the way the trunk lock looks sticking out by itself, "puckered A-hole" is my term to describe how it looks to me

I have considered different options such as having the lock removed and the hole filled or possibly covering it up with a ram head badge but for now am happy just leaving it "as is"

I debadged recently (after the pic in my sig pix are coming) and it looks much cleaner. I do still have the ram head "ornament" and i think i am going to put it somewhere else (inside somewhere)
