    Fishing wire on a hot day in summer (or simulated with a warm hair dryer), carefully pull the wire behind the badge and it will come off. Used some turtle wax tar and bug remover to remove any sticky residue left over

    I did mine today with the hot water and cash card method and made loads of tiny scratches. Bought some Meguiars Scratch X which, to my amazement, got rid of them. I'd bought a touch-up stick from a dealer in case it didn't work, but there was no need!

    I'm now a Meguiars convert and they shall be getting some more dosh out of me soon!!

    Not sure about pouring boiling water as suggested above!

    That's exactly what I would suggest. I have a friend who has a vehicle graphics business and that's what they use - hairdryer type device and a plastic spatula thing.

    I've found AutoGlym engine cleaner (citrus based) removes gunk from paint beautifully. If you haven't got that, some Tar Remover type stuf.

    I did the boiling water thing D... It's only the heat source that's diff.. Still softens the glue.. Hair dryer might singe the laquer IMO.
    That and my tesco clubcard ( all it's used for eh?) made short work of the badges..A little cutting compound and wax, Job Done.. Now just need to do Mrs Gsi's 'new' Vec..
