    Try Goo-Gone or any other mild adhesive remover. Make sure it's paint-friendly though. Let it soak in for a few minutes than use your fingernail or something that won't scratch the surface.

    hair dryer/heat gun.... if you use it carefully, it will make the adhesive release... if not, you'll burn your paint off

    try warm soapy water and a razor blade. i heard this is how you get off pinstripes and i think it should work for vinyls too.

    I DID THIS ON MY CRX -

    Use a hair dryer to heat up the sticker and then peel it off. It'll leave a residue so get some m-5 or goo gone and use a credit card to scape off the sticky shit. Works nice!

    a heat gun works well too ... BUT BE VERY CAREFUL... if it gets too hot you can bubble your paint
