It is not hard to undo 10-12 bolts, pull out the ducting, fit your badge, and replace the ducting. Someone mentioned using locking nuts, great idea (I used spring washers for the same effect and mine hasn't moved a mm). Maybe im a cranky old mechanic that believes men (and women) should know how to undo a bolt and then refit one. Its not rocket science, even though some people think it is.
I went in through the sensor cutout in the center of the lower grill and used locking washers and a ratcheting wrench to tighten the nuts. There is no way mine is coming off. If you have smaller arms or a small wife or enterprising kid, there is no reason to drop the brake ducts. It is literally a 5 minute job to pop out 2 trim rings around the sensor, place the emblem, reach in and place the backing plate and then use a magnetic pick-up tool to feed the washers and nuts through to your fingers. Then hand tighten the nuts and finally reach in and tighten the nuts completely with the ratcheting wrench. Of course if you have big arms this way won't work.
The longest part of the process was figuring out where to locate the emblem (how far right and how far up or down).
