Your opinion, should I de-badge the "Punto" writing or not

I kinda want to de-badge the boot lid and just leave the Abarth badge. I like the clean look.

Also, because Abarths are quite rare over here, when people sometimes stop to look at the car, they are excited and all, till they see it says "Punto" on the back. Then they all say, "Oh, it's just a punto". Everything was a fine a minute ago when they didn't know it is a punto, and now all of a sudden "it's just a punto"
That will give them something to think about

Here's what it looks like today:


And a quick photoshop:


I quite like it without the writing, but I'm still not sure

You can put the badge in the glovebox if u remove it. I say "yes" take the badge off & make it's have the "Euro" look.
