    Have you just recently bought the car from a dealer? The best way to get rid of a dealer sticker is to tell them that you are not willing to spend several thousands of pounds for the privilege of advertising their company, & to refuse to buy it if they leave it in. I even go as far as to insist they fit "anonymous" number plates.

    One guy thought I was joking & left the sticker in place. You should have seen his face as I sat opposite him in the showroom on collection day, & phoned my insurance company to cancel the change of vehicle because I had changed my mind.

    See my previous post. Take it back & tell them to take it out, and make good any damage.

    It didn't really annoy me to much at first...plus i was more interested in the rest of the car and driving it....but now the novelty of the new car has worn off the sticker has started to drive me nuts! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    Hairdryer? Should soften it enough to peel off, then try using a rag with a bit of petrol on it to clean away any residue.

    I used a bit of meths on a rag and it wipes the sticky stuff off very easily.

    yeah just peal it off and it will leave a line around the outside of where the sticker was and then just use tar and glue remover to rub it off.... did this on mine few weeks back...

    while your at it take the number plate thing off the rear plate... mine had one of those black things stuck to the back of the number plate with the audi dealer info on it
