it will leave some of the sponge on the back of the badge but nothing that won't come off with a good clean and some polish

I took mine off as soon as I got the car - no marks. If the car is anything other than new it is possible (but I would say unlikely) that the paint will be a different shade where the badge was - even if this is the case it can be easily sorted with something mildly abrasive such as Autoglym Super Resin Polish.

At the end of the day - the marks will be very minor and will be easy to make disappear entirely.

ok thanks for that

Try using a heat gun or a hairdryer to heat up the glue holding the badge on then just peel it away, if theres any glue left just put some white spirit on it and itll just come off!

sorted!
