I had the same type of dealer sticker on mine and when I took it off it matched the rest of the car. I used a hair dryer and goo gone, along with some paint thinner so really get all of it off.

Installed my new Bilstien struts and Stillen Rotors and pads. No more thunk when I drive and no more wobble to the brakes! I think I gained an inch or so with the struts also!

I also discovered a bad bushing for the drivers side lower strut mount and noticed that the clamp on my cv boot is coming off! Yay

It shouldn't be discolored unless that is the original dealer emblem, I'm assuming it's not. Even if it is u could replace it with an emblem u like better... Maybe an ORT emblem?
