Had already removed the "CTS" and "3.6" badges from my 2012 CTS Coupe, but I wanted to clean up the look of the back end of the car a little more by removing the wreath. Not difficult at all, just tedious. Hair dryer and floss remove the wreath easily. The damn adhesive was a lot tougher to get rid of than the other badges though. After working the majority of the adhesive off with by rolling it up with my thumbs, an old microfiber rag with Goo Gone took care of the rest. I like the look of the shield all by itself. Hope you guys do too.
