Then wipe off the residue, and come back with either a really good polish or a wax designed to bring back and enhance color. Use your buffer again at 1800rpms, but use a small amount of pressure on the paint. Basically rest the buffer on the paint and let it do all the work. This should take care of your problems.
You can pm for better directions if you like
Fyi.... the speeds you're describing are for a rotary (not an orbital). Not sure if that's what you actually meant.

I'm having this issue on my 04 jbp RS. Its not all that noticeable unless your looking for it, but still annoying. Guess I'll find a friend with a buffer. Are clay bars worth the $20??

With all this talk about using a clay bar, buffers and polishers, does all this apply to simply removing the solid white outline of the glue?

I have never removed any badging unless the car was less than a few months old. Too much risk of fade.

If you still have glue, try a little heat and rub it off

I have a 2004 Java Black STI. Rubbing compund helped, but did not remove everything. I had to wet sand (lightly) with 3000 grit sandpaper. I then used Meguiars ultimate compound followed by their ultimate polish and viola, no more ghost marks!

After I removed the dealership badget it left a thin layer of residue. Most annoying thing ever.
