hi there, try and rub a load of vinegar on it with a damp warm cloth.

if not, try something like pure lemon juice or anything with a nice bit of acid in it.

hope this helps.

heatgun or hairdryer, run it over it for a little bit, if you use a heatgun hold it a fair bit away so you dont burn the paint. shocd melt the glue and then get a glove or even just a cloth and rub it and it should come off easyly ;)

Yeah if it removes the shine you can always T-Cut it, gives it that nice finish. Just MIND THE PAINT! You don't want to end up scratching it or anything, that's the LAST thing you want! L.O.L.

tried all the suggestion and none worked so rubbed it down so it was close to bodywork and stuck new badge over the top can only see it if you look really close, so not to bothered
