    try heating them up with a hair dryer to sofen the glue. Then gently peal away.

    When I had some refective stickers removed from a bike a friend used peterol as it destorys the glue, but that was on my raleigh activator push bike (I was like 15 at the time), but not sure if it would react with the cars paintwork
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    i used some industrial cleaner that my dad got from work....dulls the paint off but a quick polish sorts that out!

    go ask a window tint place what they use to get the glue off when removing tints as that glue is the worst in the world!

    Heat the vinyl with a hot air gun then peel off.
    Tar and glue remover is best for removing the glue residue left behind.
