hahaha, OK, I'm going to try to do it someday too.  Removal sucks,
theoretically ruins the metal strip.  Peel up and then remove gunk with
a special razor blade tool that isn't supposed to scratch the paint

Install with RTV or something.  A new set for a coupe (6 pcs) retails
for about $400.

3M strip-calk.  I think the part number is buried somewhere in my web
site.  About $15? for 60 1 foot pieces in a box.  I attached my logo to
my trunk with two years ago.  Still there.  Attached Audi logos (from
defunct side moldings) to my wheel center caps with it a month ago. 
Still there!
