What would you do if you were me?

After posting a picture it was pointed out my ///M5 badge on the trunk lid / boot is in the wrong spot.
My question is; would you leave it alone, would you remove/debadge it, or put it in the correct spot?

After reading many threads I'm not expecting the debadging idea to be big here.

Here is how she is currently:

Ditto. But I'll elaborate and say buy a new ///M and "5" and then install in the correct spot.

I don't like the badges I would just remove it. The point would be only an M5 dude will know it is in the wrong spot and he can tell it is a M5 without the badge,so... they are likely the only ones offended by it being in the wrong spot.
