Remove carmax sticker
Does anyone know how to remove this obnoxious carmax... sticker on my car w/o having to re-paint the area where it once was?

hmm, any other ways? I'm pretty sure there's gotta be a DIY way that I can use, it's just a vinyl sticker.

if it's just a vinyl sticker, then peel it off...

heat it up with a blow dryer on low and peel it off.

I told my dealer they had to take it off without a mark, or I wasn't buying the car.

They took it off, too thumbsup

Use Goo-gone spray. Works like a charm.

theres no way a vinyl sticker will take the paint off unless you use a paint scraper to take it off thumbsup

Got a Picture of the Sticker removed. When I used the Goo Gone, the glue all clumped up into a big ass brown ball, it was kinda nasty, and then it smeared on the trunk, so i was like FUCK it's not working, so then i got a new rag, DOUSED it in goo gone and it came off all pretty, then I wiped it clean with a wet rag. take a look!
