Oh gotcha yeah sounds kinda like the debadging gunk, which comes off with patience and a wax bar if needed..

You guys sound like you make a relatively easy job very difficult. WD-40 does an awesome job at removing adhesives and glue residue easily.

You guys are on summers already? We get snow in April here sometimes! Early April at the earliest for summers.

I used goo-gone. Citrus based goo remover. Worked well on the adhesive left behind from the dealer badge.

The goo gone didn't work too well on mine, it all came off but there was still residue on the trunk..

Use WD-40 and a few Scott's Shop Towels (or similar). It'll come right off.

I used it with a microfiber and still had to use a lot of pressure to get it off.

Really? How was that for you? Your summers are probably destroyed.

I didn't feel like wasting the tread on my winters anymore so I HAD to switch. It's been too warm lately.

My bro had a '00 s4 before his 04 STI and ill I can remember is him spending his entire paycheck just for maintenance. Hell even a basic catback costs $1,500+ and the list goes on. I'm sure glad to have my Impreza
