Ditch them, some look good, but those don't. Fingernails of a plastic razor blade and a hair dryer work well.

Almost everyone takes them off. Its really a personal choice. I'd take it off, just use a razor blade to peel off a side and then pull it off. Use rubbing alcohol to get rid of any residue left behind. Be careful when using the blade so you dont scratch any of the paint off.
