So I de-badge just about every car I get and I've done that for the last 20 years or so. Why? One, I do like the "clean" look of such. On the Chevy truck I had I even pulled off the side molding and cleaned that all up. I do like the look, but I also really don't like cleaning in and around all those things. It gets aggravating to get everything cleaned up and think it's all perfect, drive down the road, and get all kinds of water coming out from behind those things. So there's my $0.02. on that.
As far as the chrome, I don't mind some chrome honestly. I don't go to any huge lengths to get rid of all chrome. I went to a car show today and realized that back in the day when door handles, grills, and mirrors were all actually made out of metal it looked nice for those things to be chrome, and it looked nice. Now we seem to have all these plastics that end up getting chromed and I'm not just a real big fan of that.
