That is perhpas teh best way. Get some sort of a plastic tool you can wedge underneath the badge to pry it off. Make sure to come back with some pics after you update the look of your car. Oh -- and please to not rebadge as an M3.
yes, you can use floss, or fishing line, or something like that. After that, you can either use Goo gone, or lighter fluid, or a similar cleaner to take the glue residue off. Just be nice to your paint. Debadging your car is very easy, and will look very clean once you are done.
p.s. then, when you wax your car, you won't have to worry about getting wax out of the stupid letter/numbers!! Yess!

When I took the badge off mine it was two sided tape, the i sticks really well too. My dad does vinyl work out at his shop so I was lucky enough to have some Malco (or maybe it was 3M . . . ) adhesive remover around, that stuff works awesome.
