    There shouldn't be any fade on a year old car. You may have some glue reside left, but some clay and a polish up will see it good.

    i debadged my 57 reg sporthatch this week just pored boiling water over badge and pulled off slowely bit by bit then gave it a good wash with warm soapy water to remove left over sticky stuff then dried and gave it a good polish worked the area for about 5/10mins then buffed with mf cloth, there wasnt really any fade just the gaps in the griffin were its not been possible to previously polish wa a little duller. take your time and be patient its really easy and results are pleasing.
