    There is a little 'How to' guide on here, all you need to do is grab a hairdryer, OLD plastic card (cause it will get ruined) I found that a VISA card works best (joke) any old plastic will do.

    Before you start, try and sheild any meltable plastic like your tail lights otherwise they may bubble under the heat.

    Now hold the hairdryer fairly close to the badge and start to heat the glue, every now and then try and prise off the badge, this will get easier as the badge glue becomes hotter, once all badges are removed, try to get the remaining glue off while it is still hot, use meths/petrol to remove any remaining glue. < let the glue and surface cool down first though!! heat and petrol = bad combination!

    Just pulled mine off - fingernails behind one end of the badge and just pulled forwards. It all came easily and hardly any messy gluey stuff left behind (which cleans off easily with white spirit, then a polish up).

    Wait till it's sunny (yeah as if). Face the badges towards the sun then try and pull them off, should be easier,
