I've read a couple of posts that said the 3M double sided tape used on the front bumper to attach the front plate is quite strong. A couple of people responded that paint did come off....not sure if it was at the hand of a dealer/VPC or their own.

I have no personal experience with anything like the this other than de-badging my E61 which caused no paint damage.
Use a heat gun or blow dryer (not with a steady heat but with a back and forth motion) to warm up the adhesive and it comes right off with no damage.
