    I am wondering if there's any good way to take out the center wheel cap? I'm trying to put decal on it and also I haven't tried to take off the cover underneath the car for installing the hitch, does it require any tools to remove the cover?

    Screw driver for hitch cover. 2 plastic plugs. I used a knife to remove the caps on my S

    For the wheel caps, try a wad of the stickiest tape you have (like Gorilla) or a strong suction cup that "just" covers the logo area.

    Thanks for the advice and my car is in SC now due to some minor issues so I couldn't try it out yet. Will definitely work on them after getting it back hopefully tomorrow.
