By chance, has anyone done any plasti dip on the Emblems ?
If so, would you mind sharing some pics ?

Some have shared of ceramic cover on the front grill -- nice touch !

Was thinking of removing the "XC40" and "Recharge" emblems as well.....hhhHmmm.....

Exact same ideas here. I have Glacier Silver, and I have a can of plastidip in the basement, so maybe I can give it a try. In general, I should be able to quickly remove if it looks bad. Removing the minor badges (We don't need no stinking badges) is not as easily returned to stock.

Perhaps a replacement badge, such as the word "RECHARGE" in a Volvo-ish font.

Totally agree ! While I value simplicity and not go too crazy with space age designs for EVs, except for the front grille.... i wish there was a tad more differential.....

The Range Rovers have pretty nice black-out on emblems against White/Silver.....looks pretty darn good !

I was even thinking of being totally unconventional by plastic dip it with WHITE !!!! It would look like its "EMBOSSED"........

If you decide on the plasti dip, please do share pics !!

I did my Cayenne. It turned out great and lasted 3 years (until I traded it in on the XC40). It's very easy to do: just mask off the area, spray it on, let it dry, and peel it off.
