    Rear bumper sticker?

    Hi on the sline avant, the rear bumper has a black "sticker" running along the bottom. What happens if I remove this sticker? Is it painted underneath?

    The sticker is applied to the finished painted bumper.

    Take your time and use a heat gun, otherwise it WILL peel the paint off, i removed mine prior to painting bumper and it too forever, then it leaves a sticky residue that you need to remove, or you could be lucky and it peels straight off.

    It's just been put on, as have had a rear end replacement, but the stickers is full of air bubbles, looks unsightly, so might remove it, garage has a replacement on order for me, so might wait and see if they can fit it any better!
    also the chrome strip,will be replaced.
