    without damaging the paint? I thought it would've been a simple adhesive that could get peeled off and rubbed away with goo gone, but they seem to have used some sort of individual letter thing, that still has remnants from the last dealership's sticker underneath it. I wish I could post a pic but they're on my other PC. Any suggestions?

    I was going to take it to the dealer and have them remove it,but since they did such a sucky job at removing the old one, I don't think I'll waste my time with them.

    I used a heat gun set on low with a piece of dental floss and they came right off. Then go over the area with a cleaner wax or something like that if you're using OTC products to get rid of some of the ghosting.

    no blow dryer for home.. so I used a small space heater at a distance for a while in the garage to warm her up and took a best buy gift card to it... the letters came off much easier when warm, but the glue/residue from this sticker and the previous one still remains. Now if only I could find the goo gone :mad:.
