    Use De-Solv-it it for the sticker...it's great for adhesives and uses a citrus extract to get the job done.

    Well, whats the white haze from? Cant tell you how to get rid of it w/o knowing what it is.

    And the outline you're seeing is probably due to a little fading around where the sticker was. Polishing will be your best bet to even out the appearance.

    ^Maybe I misunderstood the OP...if it is not adhesive, De-Solv-it won't help. :D

    I'd be surprised if there was oxidation on an 06 already. Could be though. Either way, try something light, like a paint cleaner or mild polish.

    P21s Paintwork Cleanser (or s100, same brand just labeled & marketed towards motorcycles..find at harley shops) is great. That should really be all you need if its oxidation. Usually an abrasive would be geared more towards surface imperfections like swirls and scratches. I would start there, but remember to top it off w/ a wax or sealant b/c the paint cleaner will remove any protective layer you have on there.
    Fwiw, if you cant find s100 locally, autogeek or detailed image would be where I would look to find P21s PWC.
