If your badges are just attached with the sticky crap, use floss. it works a treat, used it on 2 cars now. They say use kerosene to get the reminets off the paint work, but im not game enough, Just use some good old elbow grease
Well-well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don't have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can't you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?

Yep, floss :D

or if u think u have a very steady hand, use a butter knife, but this WILL scratch paint if not careful

wont it leave a outline on it due to the fact that the paint underneath has never seen sun?

I rebadged mine...

I used nichrome wire to get the old badge off... nichrome wire is awesome, connect it to a battery and it gets red hot.  Used it to melt thru the tape stuff.

I was an spray painter apprentice  in an smash repair joint(for about 4moths and said good buy ,They just wanted moneymoneymoney and didn't care for the workers and  had rubbed my (idenity)skin away  my finger tips off was really pain full ). :'(

Back to topic What they used was a heat gun to take the badges off( but u can use your moms dryer )  or just a raizor blade and then used a Honey Wheel( wich is just called honey wheel because it has same colour like honey and is made of  some type of soft rubber)  to take the sticky double sided tape off or just Prepsol (Wax and grease remover) or kerosen. 
Just  put the prepsol  or kerosen and  leave or hold  an saturated cloth of the wax grease remover/kerosen on the sticky bit for about a minute or abit longer and  you should be able to easy'li remove it with you fringers or use the cloth instead.
