I've got a 328i and im wanting to change the number plates on it..... but i noticed that it has double sided sticky tape holding the originals in place. Both on the front and on the rear.

Does anyone know how to completely remove this double sided sticky tape - as when i come to remove my plates it leaves a load of the tape still on the body.

ghead

Thanks

I wouldn't feel good using goo b gone or paint thinner on my car's... Paint surface...
Just rub it, shoulda used a hairdryer to heat the surface before removing it.
are you debadging it or replacing?

You should put a 318 label on it and race people, hah.

its not a good idea to use a lot of it or extened rubbing... but I've seen paint thinner clear up some what would other wise be a total pain to remove things from paint. as long as the clear coat is intact its not gonna be a problem.

Wd40 is the best for removing stickey tape and is safe for the paint.

also remember heat is not an adhesives friend. Using a hairdryer will help considerably.

I tried rubbing alcohol on sticky stuff...that worked pretty well. Didn't do anything besides remove a shit load of dirt still stuck on my paint. Be careful, rubbing too hard with that can eventually wear at the clear coat (it takes some work)

i don't know,, but i have always loved the smell of gasoline...
or if gasoline is no good, then maybe try an alternative like vinegar??
don't mess around with acetone, as it may work well but have other issues?? :wink
