135 stock spoiler to performance spoiler

i had bmw remove the stock spoiler and install their carbon fiber spoiler on my car. the problem is the glue or what ever was used to keep the stock spoiler on the car can still be seen on the car. tried a bunch of stuff to get it off but no luck. was wondering if any one has advice on a product i could use to remove it. ill try to post up picks up it later


edit:
its very smooth, you cant feel the texture of the glue if you run your hand across it

Garage List
3M Adhesive Remover is available at Lowes and Home Depot and is good for this sort of clean up.

Also a heat gun or hairdryer will help. With the heat gun make sure not to get the paint too hot or you will bubble it.

+1. 3M's General Adhesive Remover is what you need.

I used wd-40, then cleaned it up, hit it with meguiars ultimate compound and it was shiny bright and new.

3M adhesive remover will work better.
