Found something for removing Bugs and Tar

Let me first start off by saying I was probably more skeptical than the average person when I read the following information on WD-40. Iíve been detailing cars since I was 16 years old, worked for a few professional shops, and even own my own place when I was in my early 20ís. Before attempting it on my X5 I decided to give it a shot on the wifeís 2004 325CI, and was completely amazed. The WD-40 actually removed the bug and tar as well as everything else that was stuck on the paint with little or no effort, and left the paint as smooth as a clay bar treatment. Following the wipe down with WD-40, I washed the car before applying a coat of polish and wax. I guess you learn something everyday..

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for A rust preventative solvent and de greaser to protect Missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three
