Paint De-badging
The dealership I bought my car from put their logo on the back of my car in paint. Is there any way to remove this without damaging the real paint?

I'd make them pay to take it off I mean you didn't sign up to be a free rolling ad for them. I'd check into the legality of that. thumbsdown

really easy... just get a hair blow dryer and blow hot air at it for like a min and you can just peel it right off..

I don't think that will work since he said it was painted on

If they re-painted the whole car and it's molded onto the car don't try taking it off or you'll have a nice chip where you're badge use to be. If they just oversprayed it to color match your car go try taking it off as SilverGT604 stated. But again since your car is new listen to Speedducky if it's their ad they should remove it since it seems like you don't want it. That's what I'd do thumbsup
