    Hello,

    Mates just bought a car and since he's seen it and piad his deposit, they have put a sticker under the GTi badge and in the rear window!
    Looks a mess and he didn't notice till he got home.
    Anyway, anyone know of a quick easy way to get rid of this mess without damaging the paint???

    Appreciate your help.

    Use a hair drier or heat gun on lowest setting (really careful with the latter) to soften the glue, then gently peel away using finger nails. Remove any remaining adhesive residue with a glue and tar remover (paint, Autoglym make one that is easy to get hold of) or methylated spirit (glass) using work towels. I'd also wash the car after using a glue and tar remover to remove all traces of it (and then top up the wax or sealant protection). :)
