Removal of S1 badge on front grill

Hi,
Does anyone know how to remove the S1 red square badge from the front grill ?
Was hoping not to have to take the whole grill out.
Many thanks

I used a steak knife to remove mine, literally used it like a saw and it came off easy. I then gently sanded it so it wasn’t sharp and felt smooth to touch.

I haven’t even been able to get the S1 red square off the front of the grill yet. But looking closely you can see that once it is off it will leave a square plastic bracket behind which hangs down and is actually part of the front grill. Is this what you cut off and sanded ?
Many thanks

Well I managed to remove the front grill S1 badge without removing the complete bumper. As mentioned before the actual S1 badge is attached to a black plastic rectangular support which is part of the front grill. So I taped up the surrounding grill for a bit of protection and used a hacksaw blade and carefully sawed through the plastic support. Took a couple of minutes and then filed and sandpapered the remaining edge for a flat smooth finish. Came out really well.
Although I realise it’s not everyone’s taste, but I like the de-badged look. E384F59F-1652-4664-93D3-4EF325D06D26.jpeg 46D0ED72-F4F1-455B-A90C-C50BAA4261BE.jpeg 46D0ED72-F4F1-455B-A90C-C50BAA4261BE.jpeg 2FDDED61-13A3-4CD9-90EF-DEAA37B187F4.jpeg AF7A0551-8D27-47AF-B874-D5687AB00E52.jpeg
