I took mine off on purpose because I prefer the look without it.

Broke out the hair dryer and some dental floss expecting a bit of work. Turns out I did not need either as they both came off by just a little steady pull.

Heat soften the adhesive on the emblem, the wind and vibration tore it off. 1 in a million chances.

The adhesive used on the badges is crap. That's what makes de-badging so easy. They'll either fall off, or you can pull them off by hand in the heat, and there's very little cleanup to do getting rid of what's left of the adhesive.
