Lol. I had the exact same problem! Looks like you're nearly there but if you're still struggling, I figuredon't out that my trusty pocket knife worked a treat (make sure it's really sharp first. It slides right under and peeled the sticker off in (nearly) one go. :-)

Arnold was the last owners name, the car was wasted on them :lol:
I used a window scrapper and kettle on the last one a think. I was just determined this time while I was cleaning the car and was concerned about the scrapping the rear heater, if even possible?

Think I would have risked the jet washer or the steam cleaner on that, mate!

Clearly, I'm not as patient as some of you guys!! ;) ;)

That might have been easier, Chris! ;) ;) Or maybe they misspelt 'Android'?

:D :lol: Next time, I'll make the dealer remove it as part of the purchase agreement, see how they like it!

That's exactly what I did with my last three cars, told them if there is any of your advertising on the car when I collect it you can keep it. Never had a sticker since, though they still sneak a small one in on the plates, that lasts till I put my own reg on it.

It's funny, I used to hate dealer stickers, now I've paid to have some replica ones made up.

I love the history they provide with the car, so I've left my Taylors one on the Astra, mind you if I'd bought from Arnold Clarke I might have changed my mind.

I used some tar remover to get rid of mine. Spray on, leave for a minute and it will come right off.
