if it's a normal decal, you can buy a rubber wheel that goes on a drill and will be amazingly effective at removing it. Goo gone for the remainder.

Some polish and wax after and it'll probably disappear.
For the thick plastic ones, I have just lifted one corner with a fingernail and pulled it off. For the goo that remains, what I did was used a block style pencil eraser and water, and it balled up and came right off. I've never heard of a rubber wheel in a drill, but it would be essentially the same thing. Goo gone does work well too, though it can get messy.

Oh, so you've tried it?

I removed mine by getting rear-ended. Quick and easy

I get annoyed at the dealer's attempts at free advertising. I even removed the license plate frames. They want advertising? They can pay be $50/month to leave them on
