Its just stuck on with Double sided tape and two guide pins. Wiggle some thin weedwacker line in there from side to side and do some gentle prying with non maring "Tools"

"new non Decal ok you lost me there"

The safest and quickest way I can think of is to use dental floss, work it behind the emblem working it back and forth and cut the old adhesive until the emblem comes off.

Next use 3m Adhesive remove to clean off the old adhesive. Then your ready to put on the new emblem.

All good advice above. I've never removed an emblem but alot of C5 owners remove their Body Side Moldings (BSM) which are fixed to the car with adhesive.

I have read some use fishing line after applying heat. I'd imagine the emblem will come off pretty easily.

Heat gun or hair dryer will aid in softening up the adhesive. Reach under the bumper and make sure there are not speed nuts attached to the locating pins.

Dental floss also works, it saws through better, but also breaks more easily.
