Re: black spots

Meguiars Bug and Tar Remover is also top class.

Whatever you use don't forget to reapply a wax as the product will remove any protection you might have previously applied.

Re: black spots

bug and tar remover and then for the really stubborn bits i would buy a clay bar, the meguiars one from halfords should do the job well enough, no need for anything stronger!

Re: black spots

Kerosene ("petroleum distillates") is the active ingredient in the tar removers. Just "Homebase" is less sexy than a known brand..
