Hi - whats best for getting rid of the little black tar spots on the bottom half of my car? i tried T-Cut but it didnt do anything. Is the Auto Glym Tar Remover any good? I remember trying some sort of tar remover last year but it wouldnt even shift the kamikaze flies on my bumper.

i only noticed on mine properly when i tcutted and waxed it last week, but now i know they are there i can see them evrytime i look at the car, and its white so it makes it that much more noticable. Cheers mate!

i got some autoglym tar remover back when i was trying to get rid of the glue from taking my bumpstrips off. it was excellent for that but i couldnt get any of the tar spots off my car the other day with it. i didnt have much time though so maybe if you spend some proper time going over them with it then it will be more effective. a friend of mine did recommend it as being great for removing tar and it got rid of my bumpstrip glue no problem so its worth a try

Put some petrol on a rag and rub gently, should take it off OK, just make sure you wax it again afterwards

use the AG tar remover, its excellent. you have to spend a bit of time on it though, not just one or two swipes over. you'll notice more tar spots as you go on :lol:

I'll use the tar remover then, i also used it to do the bumpstrips and it worked very well on them.

I've been doing this over the last few days and can confirm that the Ag Tar remover is the daddy. Wipe on, leave to soak and then re attack.

Oh, when done, polish and wax afterwards.
