In my opinion the original looks far better.

Without! :D The less badges / clutter the better in my view. Mine are almost invisible anyway, so I'm OK with them.

Personally I think it looks like it has been resprayed and the job has yet to be finished, but each to their own, might affect resale slightly.
If you rebadge when selling the car be sure to spell it correctly !! :lol: :(

Had exactly the same dilemma myself see post below,

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5739&p=63254#p63254

I came to the conclusion that it does look better with the letters but decided to get the grey lettering replaced front and back with the black lettering. Dealer fit or supply apparently with a template to get the spacing correct. Try to find a front view of yours with the black pack and then compare grey with, without and black. All look very different.

It should be possible to plastidip the letters any colour you want. There are instruction videos on the tube - just Google!

I have always removed the badging from the bonnet as a). it looks naff (IMHO) and during the winter all the dirt/salt/snow steaks over the letters. Look at this link and see what it looks like on my current car:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5979

I have also removed the "Sport" and the LR badge from the boot just leaving DISCOVERY as it (again IMHO) makes it look much smoother. I think it is a cultural thing though. Brits love their badges on cars but here in Germany it is the norm to de-badge and keep you guessing! The other issue it (doesn't apply to mine as an HSE Lux as their all bright sliver) but LR like to make the badge one colour, trim panels another, grille another etc and it is all a bit mis-matched - whereas on a BMW, Merc, Audi etc their all one colour?

Yes the streaks up the bonnet are starting to annoy me already and its not even winter with salty roads.

The stupid badges on the bonnet leave streaks up the bonnet at the slightest bit of rain so they had to go.

Pleased with the result
