    They are glued on with epoxy. The bosses on the rear are just to locate the badge onto the plenum. The carbon plenums have two different carbon badges depending on year of manufacture. The threaded studs on the rear are just to locate them (I've no idea why they are supplied with nuts!).

    I know this is an old thread, but just in case someone finds it (like me) on the search for the best way to remove this badge:

    Mine (2007 F430 coupe) was glued on with silicone and was relatively easy to remove with a flat enough blade (see photo)

    Nice work! Assuming that you didn’t have to pry it at all right? Just slowly tap the flat blade in until the glue gives?

    I just pushed the tool in and turned it... that made the badge pop out.
    If the glue is stronger I would recommend using something like dental floss as a "saw" to gently cut some of the silicone. That was my plan but the badge came out very easily

    Thank you. Your instruction finally gave me the testicular fortitude to take this on. Ordered a carbon version today. Special order though so it will take about a month to get it.
