Default Nose badge question

How is the nose badge held on? Double sided tape or plastic studs on the badge?

Is it hard to remove?

Glue and 2 plastic locating studs. Heat it gently with a heat gun and slide a butter knife under it. Will most likely need to fill holes, sand, touch-up paint.

Mine was just tape, it came off easy. Maybe it was because the car was a repaint...

Prep work is 99% of a good final look. I used metal epoxy rolled into a tiny ball to just fit into the holes. Let cure, and sand the little spots with a spot sander made from wooden dowel.
As far as color matching, buffing is in order and possible respray of the whole bumper is recommended for blemish free results.
See said example:
