My local Napa didn't have anything even similar. I got the 3M adhesive remover, and it took me a lot of time to get it all off, a few hours. Finally got that part done.

Dang, that sucks! That stuff was amazing, it took everything off, ALL adhesive in like 5 mins tops. Oh well, glad you got it off with the 3M stuff.

autoglym tar and glu remover worked to get the glue marks off.
i had to flat and polish the paint as the original spoiler had clearly been stuck on whilst the paint was too soft leaving a small but noticeable mark in the laquer.
all done now, only stuck on with double sided tape-so will see how that deals with the 167mph top speed on the autobharn lol

I've used it just make sure you clean the surface with rubbing alcohol .

just let the car stand in sunlight for about an hour,
when the trunk gets warm the old tape gets off with finger power

took me 10 mins to take it off and prep it to the CF one

Just got mine installed last Friday, PLEASE DO NOT USE GOO-OFF to remove the tape it stained my trunk clear coat (ouch), had to use a fine grit sand paper to removed the stain front the clear coat, not fun at all. Anyways just use good old rubbing alcohol or Tarminator if you can find one. At the end my car looks awesome with that carbon fiber spoiler specially since i installed the Ligth-weigth CF front lip. I'll post Pics later.
