Anyone know of a good remedy for removing those damn dealership decals?

I tried peeling a small portion but can see it breaks tears on small pieces

Heat it up then use goo-gone and a plastic scraper.

A little rubbing compound, polish, wax, and a buffer go a long ways too.

Yea I figured blow dryer was a way to go also, especially with the warmer weather coming in should heat up and wither the decal easily.

I demanded them to not put the sticker on my brand new 2012! I told them that I wouldn't buy it if they did.

All I've seen them called is an eraser wheel. When you get to the auto parts store just let them know what you're doing, and they will help you out.

Scratch all of it you can and then spray carb cleaner and scratch it off with your finger nail

I sprayed the sticker with WD-40 then used a hair dryer and the letters just melted away... Then clay, wax, drive and enjoy your ride
