Wash, floss, and hot water will remove the leftover sticky part - then wax

Heat and goo gone for the dealer sticker tho, I was lucky and my dealer did not do that.

Dats da way

Also, Goo Gone is absolutely safe for clear coats so anything to the contrary is utter BS..

Why? Maybe you really like the service you get at your dealer and want to make sure other people driving down the road know where you bought your car. Also, I chose to keep the dealer lettering on mine because I want to keep it looking exactly the way it did when I took delivery.

My dealer had their license plate covers on which I took them off within the first week. Now however they are putting stupid stickers on the left side rear of the car.

Glad I didn't have to deal with that.

Yeah I almost said something, but then didn't want to make a huge deal out of it. Took 5 mins in the driveway to fix.

I peeled the dealer sticker off in the dealer parking lot. But I still have the other badges. I think I may remove them tomorrow. Or at least the flex fuel one. Plenty of advice in here on how to do it. So subscribing.
