    i think all the badges are glued with double sided tape. the easiest way is with nylon.

    Wash the area well so you have no grit in between the badges.

    Get a hairdryer and heat up the badges (well the glue really) and as your doing it slide a credit card behind..

    Then once the badge is off - keep applying heat and peal off with the card..

    then polish area and job done.

    Just done my vec estate all round.

    I warm the area with hot water on a microfibe cloth and use a length of fishing line to slide underneath. Once it's off, I used tar remover to clean of any remaining adhesive, then clean it again before polish and waxing.

    Just did mine today.

    Hairdryer and Dental floss as recomended by someone on here.

    Removed any residual glue with Electrolube LRM label remover which didn't affect the paintwork.

    Polished the remaining ghosting with Turtlewax.

    Looks good.

    Now for the front............

    Did mine today

    I used a wall paper stripper just with the hose attached and the badges more or
    less fell off , even the little bit of adhesive left just wiped away !

    After that just use some cutting polish to get rid of the ghost marks.
