    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. Bought this product from what you think is a trusty name in the car business, how wrong could I have been. This product is a total waste of money and should be taken off the shelve's. I am now having to go elsewhere for my tar remover, thanks Halfords for nothing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money Works as a good bug remover. I had a few spots of tar on my car very small lumps and it didn't even remove it, however I found that t-cut removes all tar better then any other brand. This product should be just a bug remover as it certainly doesn't touch any tar was pointless buying feel let down as some other Halfords products are really good

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from spot on Plumped for this product against the many others that are available.. Worked fine... The tar spots don't wipe off as some people expect, you have to give it a bit of elbow grease..

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money Absolutely useless, will not shift tar and struggles on bird droppings. Took forever to wash white residue off vehicle that it kindly leave behind. Luckily the trigger packed in before I could spray the mess on other side of car. Do not waste your money

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ineffective Bought to remove fairly fresh tree sap. Followed instructions to the letter and it didn't touch it on the paintwork after several attempts. It did eventually shift it from the glass after maybe 5 or 6 applications, but vigorous rubbing might have worked equally well on glass, which you can't do on paintwork. Annoying, as Halfords isn't close to us. Might be OK for bugs, but so is water and washing up liquid. Buy the more expensive branded version.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truley amazing! Using on my motorbike. I have real struggle cleaning up my engine as it is a naked with no fairings. I had perviously been using muc off but this bug and tar remove beats it 100%. Personally didn't think it was going to be much cop as it was a halfords own brand but I truley take that snobbish comment back. Fantastic stuff, get it in your basket and save yourself so long scrubbing the dirt off!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well this worked ... Bought this product to use on my white car (getting fed up of the amount of bugs sticking to my front bumper) The spray was a bit smelly but it made very light work of my bug splattered bumper ... Left it for 5 mins (possibly longer than I should have) but what a treat!! I even tried it on the side of my car where the door lubricant sometimes spills down and it wiped straight off!! No idea what's in the bottle (I'm no scientist) but I will definitely be adding this to my cleaning routine more often!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not do as it says on the tin! After spraying this on the tar spots on my white car and leaving for the required time . . . nothing happened! Maybe one or two of the spots came off after a lot of rubbing but basically it did not dissolve the tar as I expected. Very dissapointed with this as a previous make I had a year or two ago allowed you to remove the tar effortlessly. Not very good I'm afraid and it's verging on a trades description matter. Do not buy this if you want to remove tar spots.
