How difficult were the mirrors to get off and did it tear the wall with it? 

The mirrors came of surprisingly easy. I used a putty knife and then a longer blade and all three came off in one piece. Probably 10 minutes effort on each. 
 

The Corian backsplash was another story. Very, very difficult to remove. In addition to the two-sided tape, it also had a generous application of construction adhesive. It took me almost two hours to get it off. 
 

All were removed without damaging the wall behind them

Ok good to know. I found that if your patient you can use wood wedges and just put some increasing tension on what your trying to remove over a day or so. I like it, it looks good!
