I've debadged a couple of cars over the years. Mainly for a "Surprise" to people. My old Mk2 Astra Belmont LXi was an SRi with an estate back. Badges came off it when I resprayed it, and never got put back on. A Mate has a 335d, and that's been debadged so people think it's a 318.
I CAN see the point, but it depends entirely on the car itself.
On the flip side, a friend has an Escort with a 2.9 Twin Turbo under the hood, and that still says "Escort LX 1.6".
