I've had the Xenon hood scoop, quarter panel scoop, and side scoops installed with the tape that came with it last October. Both the hood scoop and quarter panels are lifting now. I'm going to get the roush hood scoop now. That way I know it will be screwedin.

Use a hair drier to gently heat it up, use a small flat object to carefully slide under what you want to remove, and it should peel off. Do it slowly, and it should not take off paint. It will leave some residue. Use some rubbing alcohol to rmove this residue. Rudding alcohol will not hurt your clearcoat.

3m tape is safe, and should not ruin your paint. if you want to remove it, you an heat it with a blow dryer, then cut it with dental floss, get under the emblem or whatever, and slice through the tape. it'll leave some tape on your vehicle, then you can use alcohol, or WD40, which will NOT hurt the paint either. soak the leftover tape, then wait and it should peel off rather easily.
