I'd have to agree with this statement, ESPECIALLY because I'm a P-plater, which makes me even more prone to being intimidated in my little Kia, especially with the raft of tradies in their huge Hiluxes with chunky mud tyres and I only get a rear vision mirror full of the Toyota badge...
as far as replacement badges, I'd only rebadge my Kia purely to differentiate mine to other people's Rios, as well as to give it a different look. Nothing about the whole "ashamed to be a Kia driver" thing, society can go stick their opinions about Kia for all I care
