[urq] Sticker time

I don't know about the paint on the quattro, but I've had good luck
with Citrasolve for removing stuff from car paint without screwing it

I bought a new Mazda 5 last year as a runabout car.  It's a cheap car,
and it's not got the best paint on it.  The day after I bought it, I
was following a guy who somehow managed to have a spray can of white
paint fall out of his pickup bed and then explode all over the front
of my new car (graphite grey).

The dealership recommended the Citrasolve, and it worked great to
remove the paint, and I've also had good luck with removing bugs and
tar with it too.  I think it's key to wash any area you've used it on
right away though.
