Plate pads eroded paint work

So, I know the GTR paintwork is soft but seriously, this takes the biscuit!
Last night I removed the plates to clean the car properly and put on new plates. Previous owners have clearly swapped plates on numerous occasions and the amount of stick pad residue was insane.
After 2 hrs spent removing them I noticed the adhesive had actually eroded away the top layer of gloss paint leaving unsightly matt recantangles. Thankfully the new plates will hid it but not the point.
Anyone else experienced this?

I took my rear plate off yesterday to find the previous owner had used super glue along with the sticky pads!
Paint work is ruined

Cheaper to get a new oversized plate perhaps?

At least you haven't got holes in your bumper from where the dealer decided the front plate needed to be screwed on.

sounds quite likely that area has been painted before and not fully outgassed before the plates where stuck on
