They will lie and claim that it is for "clean look" but those same people would never de-badge an S or RS model.
Just get the replacement badges on ebay and put them back on.
I find that hard to beleive. I mean really.. Remove the 2.0 badge so no one will know I just dropped $50k+ on a car.. Wow, how shameful. I would like to think that people are not as superficial to think that everyone behind them will pay that much attention to the badging to determine how much someone spent on their vehicle. Most non Audi drivers are probably clueless and if nothing else are seeing the whole package more than the badging.
Every compliment Ive gotten so far on my car has lacked any conversation pertaining to my "missing" 3.0 badge. Yes I have the 2.0 and I only recently realized the 2.0 was not on my 2014. For me, I decided to give up the 3.0 and instead add other options to my vehicle since I enjoy the other toys just as much. I will say though that anyone replacing the badges with "higher" ones is pretty lame. Thats just fraudulent.
Oh well, differnet strokes I guess.
