Safely Removing A Bumpersticker?

Someone put a bumpersticker on my painted 1996 Toyota Camry rear bumper! As I have never dealt with this before, I was wondering what are the best product and method for removing this eyesore without removing all my paint? There were quite a few products at the local Auto Zone, but no one had ever tried any of them so I thought I'd ask before I bought any.

napha

Use Napha to soften up the glue Napha is just lighter fluid and will not hurt the paint or plastic.
I have used it to remove a sticker off the face of my brand new VCR no problem.
So get a can of Lighter fluid and soak it down and work from there.

Spray some(lots of) w40 on the sticker, have a drink and let it soaked for 3-5min, then peel it off. wipe off w40 after done.

The solvent is actually called naptha, otherwise this post offers good advice.

try just pulling it off slowly on a hot day or try a hair dryer before you try the chemicals
