I would like to get rid of the "116i" logo on the back of my car.
Can someone give me some advice for how to do this myself, without damaging my car or leaving marks?

Thanks

In China,the dealership guy would do that for you for free if you ask.

And they use fishing thread to "gut" the glue so it won't make any damage to your car.

Hair dryer for about 30 seconds and then fishing line - just slice it down behind each of the numbers. Followed by some bug and tar remover to get rid of the residue...

you can also try with dental floss, if you do not have fishing string.

I just removed the lettres with a hairdryer and dental floss. Went very easy and I left no marks or glue. Thanks for the advice guys.
