De-badging is a big thing in Europe, for some reason. People will fake up-badge themselves here in America, at least sometimes, putting an M5 badge on their 528i. I did de-badge my Laramie pickup. I want police to think it's a tradesman's truck.
"Up-badging" is a big No-No here in Europe.
The reason quite a few find it OK to de-badge is it makes the car more neutral.
A BMW M5 with no badges a just a 5-series unless you know what to look for.
De-badging the I-Pace is, maybe, a bit wasted for that reason when all electric cars i Norway have reg-plates indicating its EV-status.
The reason for that is all the perks that comes with driving an EV. Driving in the bus lane, free toll roads and so on. Its for the coppers to recognise the car when they do otherwise elegal stunts in the traffic.
I did it cos I like the clean looks of it.
