acetone or alcohol should make quick work of the goo.

I used to work for a graphics shop and we always used what I assume was goo gone. I smelled like oranges. He probly bought it bulk and just fill his own spray bottles. Just used the goo gone and a rag. Its still tough to get off but its the best choice because you dont want to damage your paint. The goo gone may leave a slight shiny residue. It will come off though.

Before someone considers this I might point out that a lot of times the paint underneath the badges has not been bleached by the sun like the rest of the car's paint, which makes it a little lighter than it was when new. So your left with a "ghost" of the badges in the paint itself. Luckily I was painting my whole car when i removed mine, otherwise would have looked like shit.

When I pulled mine off I buffed the whole car out and it blended almost completely. That was before I stripped it down and primered it, now you can't see it at all. :)

I tried that on mine, compounded pretty agressively and could still see them. White is probably the worst for this though

Yeah, with the black it was barely noticeable.
