    Yes, all except the one in the middle.

    Heat them up with a hairdryer and peel away the excess glue with your fingernails.

    Dependant on how old ya car is, you will need some Autoglym Intesive Tar Remover to get rid of out lining from lettering!

    I tend to use a bit of string to remove badges.

    As for removal of excess glue, I find that glass cleaner also does quite a good job. Althogh last time I did it I used scratch x and some quick detailer.
