Detailing advice

Does anyone know how to remove the BMW roadside assistance decal on the windshield area?

I mean, I want to learn how to use the right Product or special chemical. Any advice is appreciated.

I peeled it off and used WD40 to remove the sticky residue. Never would know it was there.

Just for an hour or so after. I just put the windows down and let it sit outside for a bit and it was back to normal by the time I pulled it in the garage. I made sure to only put the WD40 on an applicator outside the car before using it on the inside windshield. Didn't want to get any on the interior of it (other than the windshield).

Goo gone

Peel the sticker off & use Goo Gone on a rag to remove the adhesive remaining. Takes about 15 seconds & actually has a nice citrus smell.
