Strong fishing line, and saw it behind the badge. Then some goo gone to remove the glue just watch the clear coat. Good luck.

You just have to pull your crest.

For the glue, go to about any autopart store that sells bodyshop stuff and buy an "eraser". It's a tool made of rubber that you put on a drill an it remove every trace of glue without damaging the paint. It's about 15$.

I've always used dental floss to thread behind the badge, and a hair dryer to warm up the glue residue and peeled it off with some Goo Gone. Wax the spot afterwards.

What's the big deal about de-badging?
Are people embarassed about which model they have or is it just a cleaner look?

sometimes it has to be removed for body work, or swapping for a cleaner badge. I have nothing against badges

Nothing wrong with debadging look. IMHO looks much cleaner this way.

its fine, as long as your not replacing your old badge with an M logo. I hate non-M cars that rock the M badge. I often roll down my window and ask them "where did you get that sick M?!"

That's probol what they're looking for - recognition. Must be from too much toilet training when they were little.
