Heat it up a bit, use fishing line to get behind the badge. use a sawing motion to cut the double sided tape between the badge and the body. then you will be left with some tape. use metho to remove the glue, then wash the area with water to remove the metho. then polish like mad.
Ive removed the GL badge and also the Alloy Head badges from my XF, and none of those had any holes underneath.. and the paint underneath came back to the same colour as the rest of the car always.
Good luck with your badges mate.
