The H, or in our case A may be attached by two rivets. I'll have to look into it.
The other badges are held on by two sided tape. You can remove them with dental floss, and cleaner wax (to remover the left over glue from the tape).
I did this on my Civic Si, and it looked nice and clean. I have been thinking of doing the same on my TSX, but have for now left the badges on.

The "Acura", and "TSX" badges can be removed as stated.. But the "A" will leave you with two holes.

Yes -- oddly, that seems to be the way to do it.

Although I think the badges on the TSX are :king:

I'm just curious as to what the attraction is in removing badges? Is it for a smoother look, or just to be different?

A long time ago a badgeless car to me meant it was repainted & the emblems were left off. I know that's not the case these days.

All the badges give the rear of the car a clustered look. I am undecided about the TSX, so for now have left them on.
But with my Si, it looked much more clean (smooth) without the two badges (Civic, and Si).

Gives it a cleaner look. I'm takingmine off once I get off my ass to do it.

Yes, maybe, but.....don't you think "TSX" is beautiful? I'm serious.
The letters, the logo, just the basic idea, everything.

Put an "H" over it and get Accord logo as well. This will confuse the lame people. While it is infact an Accord, a true Accord.

The front grille assembly is different for the Acura and Honda emblem. You'll need toe Honda grille assembly if you want a Honda emblem instead of an Acura emblem. Vice-versa.

Rear is the same, while the rest of the emblems can be easily sourced outside of the North Americas region.
