Im removing the sticker the dealer had on. Is there a good solution to use to get the sticky stuff off?

WD-40 or silicone spray lubricant works at getting goo off. just wash / wax that area after.

Goo Gone will be ok for your paint, it's not strong enough to remove the clear coat.

3M Adhesive remove will also work, but it's a bit more expensive and a bit harder to get.

Take it to the dealer. It's free and if they f--- up, it's on them.

^^^^no, but i swear that was the whole point of dealers putting their emblems on cars, they give you a slight price break to advertise their dealership with an emblem.

Go to a power wash place!

When I bought my Jetta it had the dealer sticker, he said to take it to wash it yourself place with those jet hoses and rinse it at a sharp angle.... the stickers came right off for me, no scratches or marks pr anything!

the best way to do it is to get some hot soapy water....preferrably dish soap...get it as hot as you can stand it....soak a rag in it and then lay it on the sticker you want to remove for a min or so...then afterwards you should be able to peel it right off with your fingernails and then repeat the step once it is off and then scrub it down to get the goo off and you don't have to use anything that takes a chance of tearin up ur paint...

Are there any testimonies that these steps work? Which are the two best things to do to remove it, besides taking it to the dealer? My bumper has a plastic emblem of the dealership, not a viynl sticker.

Are you sure about this? #$%^ last time i checked dealers charge you an advertisement fee when you purchase a car because they had to advertise it in the newspaper and online

*Sigh* as i stated earlier.... use Goo Gone, it's safe on paint, as long as u don't leave it on there to dry. I've done it MANY MANY times.

If goo gone isn't strong enough, upgrade to 3M adhesive remover
