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

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
