if it looks like a raised badge you can get dental floss and try to remove it....if its more like a vinal decal get a hair dryer and then peel it off

I prefer 3M adhesive remover or goo gone. like Boosty said, no Goof Off, or it will take your clearcoat clear off the car.

WD-40 will also remove the remaining adhesive.
