    I just bought a new car, and the previous owner molested it with a nasty sticker. How am I taking this off without damaging the paint? Cheers

    That appears to be recently applied gheyness, and should come out easily with these steps:

    1. heat sticker with hair dryer and peel off with your fingernails
    2. remove remaining glue with adhesive remover (bought at an auto parts store) on a clean rag
    3. if there are still visible remains, take car to detail shop and give a detailer $20 to blend the are with a buffer

    Ya....that's the stock GS-T wings. Looks good to me. That sticker will not make you faster though!

    Think it's adding drag.....

    I think Griot's has some adhesive remover, but you could try the heat with a claybar too.

    A VTEC and Type R badge will give it all back and then some. Don't worry about using Honda badges on a Mitsu, no one else seems to worry about it. :ugh2:
