    Tar removal

    On the fairer half's alloys there are a zillion tiny spots of tar. I'm normally pretty good at getting tar off using T Cut or Auto Glym tar remover, but no matter how hard I scrub these little spots just won't come off. Can any of you recommend a different method or a product to try please?

    The problem with white cars... tar spots!

    So it's only been 1 month and already my car is covered in tar spots!!! I've just been out to clean my car (which was a very cold and icy experience) and when drying off noticed them.
