Just use a strong fishing line and simply "saw" the dual sided tape off underneath the emblem, always pulling towards yourself and not the paint. It may be easier if you warm up the area with a hairdryer beforehand. Once the emblems are off, clean up the area with rubbing alcohol or Goof Off, using a soft microfiber cloth.

If they are attached with clips (unlikely, but I don't know the ATS), you need to work around the clips with the line, then very carefully pop the emblem off with a plastic trim tool.

People get entirely too impatient when they’re taking off a badge....

Get some GOO GONE from the drugstore… Not GOOF OFF -That stuff is dangerous on paint, it can cloud the clearcoat. Get a medicine eyedropper or a bottle that secretes drops and “marinate” the logo every 15 minutes for an hour to an hour and a half. Then use the fishing line talked about above to saw it off and you can remove the residue with your fingers… If you marinate the logo instead of just going at it, the Logo will almost fall off the car by itself.

Best fishing line to use is 20 pound braid…

I don't doubt your method is safer Glen, but I never had any clearcoat hazing with Goof Off, most likely because I don't marinate the paint in it for 60-90 minutes. Thanks a lot for the advice, though, I didn't know it was dangerous, will switch to Goo Gone

The legit way to do it....

Goo Gone for an Hour followed by a heat gun at a SAFE distance don't shove it right up on the car itll come right off with easy pull

That leaves room for damage, if you follow the method above it's very difficult to do any damage. I'm a complete idiot and I got my rear badge off with a similar process (I did the line first then goo gone on the remainder.

Put painters tape all around the emblem as well.
