Default Sticker removal advice required

As you may know, my CQ had the word 'quattro' emblazoned down both sides. Well I started to remove them today and am left with outlines of the words and of course a gluey residue. I know there are products to remove the glue and crap but which one is best? Rather than pick a product I figured that someone here would know the best at a reasonable price... Mines no show car but I would still like to make it look good.

Any thoughts gratefully received.

Panel wipe would be worth trying

Hair Dryer and hot soapy water worth a try

Targo or similar is good for removing the glue safely

Would be wise to test on a hidden surface if using a different product.

Once the glue is removed, you may need to give the surrounding paintwork a fine cut as the paint behind the letters will be fresher depending on how long the vinyl was on the surface.

Hope this helps

I think WD40 works.
