What to use to take "Appoxy Blue" off your paint? Without Damage.

I currently have a 3pc. AC Schnitzer rear lip spoiler on my M3, I will be switching my trunk with a CSL CF bootlid this coming spring. But before I have it painted I would like to test fit it to make sure everythings ok before I do so or even possibly leave it on unpainted for a few weeks before I have it painted.

My main concern right now is how am I gona be able to take off the 2 end pieces that are appoxied glued on my car without damaging the car/paint as well as the spoiler? I was told at the time I had my current spoiler installed that it isn't a problem taking it off but I simply don't know what product I should use to make it a easier process and without damaging the paint or the spoiler? Is this something that should be professionaly done or is it easy enough for me to accomplish myself?

I beleive the appoxy glue is the standard black adhesive glue that they use for rear roof spoilers and for rear lip spoilers similair to mine. Does this glue stain the paint?

All suggestions much appreciated, I hope this process will not be a problem and can be resolve without to much of a hassel.

Appoxy blue was a typo sorry I spelled it right on the thread tho...

But I am trying to ditch the spoiler just wana make sure that if I take off the end pieces off it won't mess up the paint but seems like no one knows weather it will or not? I guess I'll have to find out the hard way...

Nevermind then forget I even asked.

Its not like super glue or anything and I'm pretty sure it comes off with no major problems but just wanted to know if anyone knew what you can use to loosen it up so it will make it easier to take off.
