"Don't you look at that car... if you don't know what it is, you don't deserve to know." :D

I almost want to remove the badges from my X... It's so noticable anyway, and when it gets hot, some of the little pieces of metal (badges, like the 1 and 0's...) get wobbly, being stuck back on to the wrap when it was done last fall...

But seriously, it was probably one more cost-cutting measure, and they may have thought it was distinctive enough on its own.
