you can ask your dealer to leave the dealer sticker off of the car. A lot of us have.

If they don't leave it off at the dealer, a hair dryer and a little work will take it off in seconds. Some goof-off or goo-gone will remove any sticky residue left behind.

Go to a different dealership. There is no reason the dealer should insist on putting their crap on your car if you don't want it. Don't give such a lousy dealer your business. Members here know of plenty of good dealerships all over. Let us know the name of this crap-tastic dealership. See how they like that kind of advertising.

Ditto.

If the dealer insists on leaving it on for advertising, tell him you want him to pay you $100.00/mo for the advertising.

No, seriously, tell him not to put it on, or go elsewhere

if he says he has to "advertise" his dealership then tell him you expect a monthly commision of about five thousand dollars. SAY: "hey this is a hot new car so everyone will be looking at it, and if you wanna advertise welllllll that's not cheap, hey noone ever said advertising wwas cheap" i guarantee if you throw out something like that with some crazy amount of cash then he will NOT put it on there.

Watch out, some dealerships have metal emblems. My mom's PT Cruiser has a dealership emblem on it and it's as if it were a true badge and it's impossible to pry off.

A little WD40 and some dental floss and that metal badge will be on the ground.

but i'm pretty sure he doesn't want it lol. i would rather have my car flawless the way i want it than get paid a hundred dollars a month for something i hate on it, that will, over time, ruin the paint.

You need to insist on it. Have them put it in writing. It's your car, you paid for it, you should have it the way you want it.

If it does become necessary, most dealer stickers are easily removed, and yes, the Goo Gone works wonders. The removal methods mentioned here are good advise.

I've gotten that sticky stuff off with WD-40. May take a few minutes, but you can't tell anything was there.

There are a ton of solvent/removers out there. It won't ruin the paint unless you leave it on there for an extended period of time. Then if you take it off, the paint will seem faded around the outline of the badge (from expose to sunlight).

Everyone has missed the most obvious solution. It's a Camaro. Put an "I love Iron Maiden" sticker over the dealer one. DUH!

Don't let them put it on.

And if you do, you're buying it as soon as it arrives so the badge will not have enough time to cure like a car sitting on the lot for months.

The badge will come off easily with a little heat.

I actually put in my purchase order that no sticker is to be put on the car AND NO HOLES are to be drilled in the front bumper area for the license plate frame!!!

California is a mandatory two plate state so you have to get to them and make sure its not done.

WD40 wont hurt the clear coat at all. It will obviously strip the wax off but it wont affect the finish.

You can also find "adhesive removers" at many auto parts stores. Just make sure it says it safe to use on auto finishes.
