Tell the dealer principal owner if he can't do it you'll find an attorney who will! Sort of kidding here, but I would be furious. Dealer should remove this for you, free of charge, no questions asked, do it right, and apologize for your inconvenience.
I took mine off the 2nd day I had the car.
At first I thought it was going to be a nightmare, but it was very easy indeed.
My 'dealer sticker' was done using 'sticky letters'. After taking a deep breath, I used my fingernails to pull one end of one letter and it came right off. I didn't need to wash anything after I took the entire dealer logo out.
After that, I used a high power lamp to search for any scratches, but none were found. (not even the edges of the 'sticky letters' were there!
P.S. Ah, almost forgot, don't even think about using any sort of sticker remover on your new paintjob.
THe easiest way to remove those pesky stickers is to use a blow dryer. Let it warm up the sticker a bit, then pull it off. Use easy pulling pressure and pull at a sharp angle to the panel, as in almost touching the sticker back onto itself. Works every time with no residue left. Good luck.
I peeled mine off as soon as I got home with my fingernail. A hairdryer would work to help soften it, just don't get it too hot.
It shouldn't leave any scratches if it is black tape like mine was.
If they want me to advertise, they gotta pay me. Haha
Dude,don't take it back to the dealer. Your lucky enough to get your vette at delivery with-out a scratch. Most new car dealers hire young teen-agers in there prep dept. who don't have a clue to what is going on. Every time you go back to the dealer you are opening your self up for needless damage to your car, You can't imagine how many dealership employee's are involved with your car,then when someting happens they all say "I don't know". Your best bet is to do it your self or find a quality detail shop.
It's not a sticker it's one of those raised badges attached using double sided sticky tape the same way the Z06 emblem is attached to the side of the car or a Cobra on the side of a Mustang. The dealer was landmark in Houston and it was on the car before I bought it. Sad thing is they put it on crooked.

Go back to LandShark (they do not have that name for nothing ) and DEMAND they take their badge off - and present them with an invoice for advertising.
Tell them that you are going to observe them to note any damage they may do to your car - Tell them they either do it - or tell them, (the salesman, sales manager, the general manager AND the dealer principal) that you WILL be moving to a new dealership.
Since they will be total a$$wipes like they always are, and won't bother helping you - thank them and walk out.
Tell them where you will be going - to Munday - one of the few competent and Corvette friendly Dealerships in Houston.
Also spread the word - if folks do not wish to take up the fantastic prices offered by the out-of-state forum dealers (and I am by no means trying to slight Rick or any other forum dealers here - you guys rock, honestly) - that for those folks who choose to spend their money in Houston - Munday will meet anyone's price on Z06's - and has the aftersales service to match. (Having decent dealer has made surviving all the "character flaws" of the Z06 very bearable)
They are also, as I have said VERY Corvette friendly and knowledgeable (the resident Corvette Guru & Shop Foreman drives a 400+hp heads and cam C5 )
Hook up with Pat Hall in service, and let him know Paul K with the QS Z06 sent you over.
