Goo Gone and a micro fiber towel should do the trick.

I picked away at the glue til it was gone then used rubbing compound and a terry cloth and went away with no issues. Also used running alcohol as well for the glue.

Another solution not mentioned yet, is to simply put the emblems back on.

I think you will be fine with a good wax or polish to remove the residue. Be careful not to take any of the clear coat or paint off. I have also used WD40 to remove glue on my car. The WD40 did not damage the finish.

Good luck.

With the Goo-Gone, I've found it's best if you let it set on the adhesive for a few minutes.

Use with caution. You need to be careful with rubbing compound too. You can rub to deep and take the finish off.

You would need the strength of Zeus to rub off a mil of clear. The compound is still less abrasive than goo gone and wd40. But more than wax or polishers so its a good middle ground.
