It will leave three holes. If you are careful you can remove it, paint it, and return it with no problem. It is plastic so be careful.

As said above three holes held on with compression fittings that should be replaced but you may be able to reuse if done carefully. The star is plastic with a chrome finish that will have to be taken off before priming and painting. Any good automotive paint will work but you must remove the chrome and prime first for good results or just wrap it in Vinyl.

When you are trying to take it out, try not to bend the mercedes emblem. Instead of painting the emblem, using the 3m vinyl black or dry carbon fiber looks really nice.
