On my EL i removed them by using a very small and blunt knife and a heat gun. It only took about 5mins to remove all 4. But removing the double sided tape off the strips took a while using a razorblade.

I painted them white the same colour as the car, but personal now i think they look crap. I'm considering getting paint stripper and taking it all off and then put them back on.
