Usually, glued on these days. A bit of gentle heat to soften the adhesive.

You can easily remove badges with hot water and dental floss.
Boil a kettle, allow to cool a few degrees and pour over the badged area. This will soften the glue enough to be able to remove.
Drag the dental floss under the badge to separate.

I’m sure w heat gun will work too. But they reach considerably higher temps than 100C, and therefore easier to damage badge and/or paintwork.

Any residual glue can be removed with more hot water and a plastic blade/credit card
MY20 White HSE, performance seats, pano roof and everything black that is an option

I have done it on my last car without any extra heat. Just park the car for a few hours in direct sunlight and use dental floss.
After this use a light paint cleanser to remove the last stains.

I'd suggest a hair dryer to warm it up

I've heard from one of the dealers that the've already made an error using the industrial hot air gun and they've had to spraypaint the entire booth of the car. So nowadays they are leaving it up to the damage repair company just to be sure.
I haven't had the time to go by the repair company but the Floss option sounds legit :) may give that a try this weekend.

Or WD40 - a surprisingly versatile product! ;)
