Heat helps soften the foam adhesive pad thingumy's glue (hairdryer is plenty enough heat - though not necessary), then use a butter knife / pallete knive carefully or use fishing line / dental floss to remove it.

Why replace the Whole Badge? Just replace the Sticker...unless you are de-badging the Car?

Correct , the metal disc is just stuck there. It has a dimple in it to make sure you seat it correctly on the horizontal but just stuck there. But look at what JonV has to say...

You can get the swedish flag design elsewhere. Just do a search.

I really want to just tint them.
What would be the easiest way to do that?
