Removing Trunk BMW badge ????

How is this accomplished ?
It's not an internal removal as far as I can see from removing the internal trunk cover.

This is how I did mine:

1. Used thin fishing line in a sawing motion to cut glue holding the badge (between badge and car)
2. Used Goo Gone to soak and remove remaining glue on the car

Be careful not scratch the car surface

I used an old credit card under a flat screwdriver and it popped right off, then followed with some rubbing alcohol to clean the area up.

Heat up the badge with a blow dryer to soften the glue and then either peel off or use the floss or fishing line technique.

+1 I've de badged many cars this way. Heating up the glue makes removal a cinch w/ usually no to very little residu to remove and if you store the badge on wax paper in a ziploc you can easily restore when you go to sell
