Amen to that. When I bought my Mustang GT a couple years back they took it back to prep and clean it up. When I walked out to take delivery I saw they had applied their decal to the trunk lid. I gave the keys back to my sales rep and told him I wasn't taking delivery until that sticker was off the car.
Same thing with my wife's car and the licence plate thingy. Went in the trash before we even left the dealership.
I usually let the license plate frame with the dealers name stay on up until the plate comes in. Then it goes in the trash.
This sticker thing just p**ses me off though. They assume someone wants their ugly sticker on their car so they can get some free advertisement.
I'm new to the forum, but I traded in my Outlander Sport on my Cherokee. For those that don't have the TH but would like the option of the decal for much less than 150 and would like the ability to peel it off with no damage or ill-effects, look at PlastiDip. I dipped my front end, hood, and roof, all for about 25.00. You can get balck and white at Home Depot in the paint section for around 2.50 a can. One can would do the hood decal.
btbean, didn't think it stand up to that. i was always afaid moisture would seep in through little pin holes and cause rust. may have to rethink this.
Oh yes, plastidip is a wonderful thing. I had some hard edge peel-back with a pressure washer once but it was my fault for going light on the coating near the top of the hood. With 6 or 7 coats it wont do that.
