The spray bottle worked great for me too... Just spray, let sit for a couple of minutes and wipe off. I just use some last week an it did the trick.

I've had success with BUG and Tar remover, just let it sit couple minutes before you wipe it off. Another alternative might be to use a clay bar ( found at any automotive store, probably Walmart too), that stuff lifted every little contaminent bonded to my paint. Even those spots that you can rub forever and still wouldn't come out, Little clay bar action got ride of them all. I'm a happy camper with my cars finish now. Zero spots and all Zaino'ed up

we drive on country roads, so we get alot of tar on the car. Two things help alot: mudflaps and gasoline. The mudflaps work well at preventing the tar from getting there, and gasoline works great to get the tar off. I only use it on the lower part of the bumper, so I am not too worried about it eating my clear coat. As far as bugs go, get a scrub brush and some dawn. Whenever we clean our cars we put a ton of soap in. W use the stuff made for cleaning cars for most of the body, and apply Dawn to the brush to get the bugs off the front.

YAAAAY!!! The WD-40 took off the BIG ones that were really bothering me, i'll work on the smaller ones later. I'm just gonna leave the ones on my paint alone, they actually match the paint pretty well.

Again, MANY MANY THANKS.

Haha, and i guess i shouldn't have complained about trying to get stains off in the cold, cause now I have to spend hours pruning bushes in it :P

I'd bet the cold will make it easier to remove them. Colder weather makes it easier to get tree sap off, and tar, too.

I did not know that. Maybe the rest of them will come off in the coldest part of winter.
