What's the best way to go about removing the lettering from the back of the car without causing any damage? I assume they're just glued on, so I was thinking of using bug and tar remover. If anyone's got tips, please share. Thanks.

Labels.

I got a '03 C230K loaded with the HID headlights and all.
I took off the 1.8 labels on the side and it was very simple. I just pulled them out (they're glued) and then with water and a rag, I cleaned out the glue. I had to apply a bit of Thiner at times, but it really worked and no paint damage at all. The KOMPRESSOR part should be the same. Just be sure to be gentle and take your time!

Thanks. I'm picking up the car next week from the dealership, so I actually contacted them and they're gonna do the removal and have it all ready for me when I get it.

definitely helps...looks better in that pic than it did in the other one.

Not fair..you guys get funky number plates over there....over here we get plain boring white and yellow plates with BIG mumbers on them :(

Somebody peeled some of the letters so i have to remove the whole "KOMPRESSOR"! They said use the Goo Gone but it was a lot of work! I managed to remove them but with some very minor scratches.
Also i can still read the word becuase the colors will be different!
