    If anything like most cars, just buy some 'sticky stuff remover' from any decent stationary shop or heat with hair dryer to soften it then remove with fingers.

    Use a hairdryer to warm up the glue.
    Use a fishing line to remove the badges.

    Use 3M Citrus Spray to remove glue residue.

    If there's any difference in the paint, use some polish to solve the problem :)

    Methylated spirit is pretty handy at removing the glue residue but have no idea what it'll do to your paintwork.

    Why bother.... Audi have started doing it for you.

    'TFSi' only on the back hides the embarassment of a 1.2 motor for those who prefer larger ones!!

    petrol or white spirit will easily remove the stickyness residue - just wash and polish the area once you are finished.

    a decent tar remover will also clear the stuff, i did mine yesterday and used Autoglym Tar Remover that I got from halfords, its great stuff and can obviously be used again for cleaning your car!

    Use white spirit and not petrol, petrol could damage the paint, but WS shouldn't touch it. I've always just use polish/wax as it has cleaning agents in that that usually breaks down the sticky residue.
