I removed the GLA250 and 4Matic badges, just left the star.
Same here, but I had the dealership do it prior to delivery. Looks much cleaner.

Looking at doing the same leaving on the AMG and spraying it gloss black I'll post pics as Delbert is Thursday

Considering it as well but I think I'll just go black out the emblem.

The fender "TURBO AMG" badge is likely going to be taken off though, that one probably bugs me the most.

I've been debating the same. I'd also like to treat the "fire engine red" taillights with some soft darkening to unify it with the rest of the car, and Plastidip the emblem.

Attached a photoshop of what I'm considering.

That looks nice especially with the darkened tails.

The blacked out tri-star looks kind of awkward and out of place though all by itself. Might be better if it stayed chrome.

It might look better if the chrome trim on the trunk is also blacked out along with the star?

I just removed the dealership and the 4Matic badges, leaving the GLA 45 and AMG ones on.

Forgot to add that IMO, both the GLA 45 and the AMG badges on each side of the boot do balance each other so that's why I decide to leave them on.

Now thinking of tinting the signal indicators of the rear lights... :)

Your AMG had a 4matic badge?

Yup, it does!

Here's a crappy photo of the dealer's AMG with the stickers attached. I removed those circled in RED.

I tried this - but it was visually a bit abrasive.

There's a line established as well by the continuity of the chrome with the back-up clear lenses. Can post pics later if you're interested.

I'm going to take the GLA250 and 4matic badges off my car this weekend.

If I remember I'll take before and after photos for comparison.

so after changing my mind about 10 times I decided to keep the badges on for now.

I sealed my car this weekend and wanted to decide before sealing but I'll probably de-badge in a year or two.

I think I'll debadge mine this weekend including the 3-pointed star for a completely clean look.

Speaking of the 3-pointed star, there are no tabs or holes in the liftgate, right? I don't want to remove it and then find out there are placement holes there and have to put it back.
