    They are stuck on with tape on the back of them So apply a little heat and they should come off reasonably easy ! You can get replacements of E bay that are Genuine parts for around a fiver :icon_thumright:

    Or you can "saw" the badge off with a piece of thin string then soften and remove any tape residue with white spirit .
    Flat the chrome with 800 grade wet n dry paper or steel wool then etch prime and paint..

    Even better than string, fishing line is best then white spirit, and you want satin black as the paint.

    I think the front one is clipped on and are usually knackered once you try to remove them easier to by a new one they arnt much, Halfords do some nice acrylic paint if its satin you want them warm the badge slightly first it makes the thinners evaporate quicker giving a more uniform satiness

    New ones are about £13-£14 for audi dealers, the clip on at outer edges, and top and bottom of all the rings.

    Dental floss is also ideal for getting behind the badges !
