    Front? I didn't have to remove the bumper just the piece of trim along the top edge which allows you to access the rear of the grille. I've got large hands and I managed to get inside and release the clips!

    You can clip them out carefully, ive done that in front and back, painted them black and installed back, no additional dismantle needed.

    I have this.
    It's really thin foil and you need a heat gun.
    Looks good but keeps some silver.

    You take something thin and made from material that dont do harm, and carefully try to put it under the S chrome parts, and pull the clips loose step by step. Front one was easier, as the badge is bigger and the gap where to start from was bigger also. Hope it was helpful.

    Hard to tell, they are not exactly the clips, more like very little plastic parts what goes inside the black part under the S chrome parts. There was about 4-6 for each chrome parts but i cant say what locations, dont remember. Actually its not that big of a deal if you are going to remove it gently, trust me :)

    @Redline...hope this picture shows you where the clips are to remove S logo. I used a plastic trim tool and and gently prized it off and wrapped my front badge. I purchased a new boot badge but they come off the same way. The trick is to be very gentle because the clips are very small. IMG_0350.jpg

    Little help here...

    Attempted to wrap my front badge but it wasn’t very good so attempted to remove it’s per some instructions above... and failed as you’ll already be able to tell.

    I managed to get 3 of the 4 side clips undone (I broke the last..) and can’t for the life of me get the top and bottom ones unlatched. Tried using a small screw driver and just my fingers with no luck..

    Any advise would be more than welcomed.
