2022 Kia K5 EX - Ebony Black
Has anyone attempted to take the dealership decal off? What worked best!? I’ve always used Dawn dishwashing liquid after heating with a hair dryer.
It really depends on what kind it is. Mine was just simple vinyl lettering and logo. The South Carolina afternoon sun and heat were enough to make it peel off with no residue and no problems.Has anyone attempted to take the dealership decal off? What worked best!?

After using a hair dryer and car wash it came off with a little time and patience. Much better.That’s always been the first thing I do as soon as I park the car in my driveway the first time. Slowly heating it up w a heat gun will do it. Very slowly and evenly. It doesn’t take a lot of heat and you don’t want to damage the paint.
I also make them do it because 1) I want to put the responsibility on them if it somehow fucks up the paint or anything. 2) Some of these dealerships have gigantic freaking nameplates or decals they slap on the back of their cars and I want to make a (however minor) statement that my car is not a billboard for your mediocre-at-best dealership. 3) I think it cheapens the aesthetic, especially on a car as beautiful as the one we are all here for. 4) why the fuck am I wasting MY time taking off something THEY applied, especially after they just made a sale? They get the penalty of spending the 15+ minutes trying to get it off.Didn’t know that was a thing. Good to know.
