Goo Gone, dental floss, and many applications of compound/polish/wax.. Should be good to go..

Because it looks cleaner without emblems. The "Lexus" and the "L" are pretty redundant and having badges on each side of the trunk disrupts the clean lines of the whole rear end.

Goo gone, dental floss, heat gun, and a soft towel will do the trick (possibly claybar if your emblems have been on the car a long time like mine were (10 years lol))

haha, I know. Sometimes people go crazy on their debadges and use harsh chemical, towels, and/or use too much force.

Ah, yeah. You can kind of see mine, but only if you're literally an inch away and looking up from the bottom up while sitting on the ground. No biggie to me because you can't see it 99% of the time. Plus, it's 10 year old paint. I was expecting a lot of buildup around the lettering, but it's no where near bad enough to need to repaint or anything like that.
