    Rated 5 out of 5 by Bug shifter Very good stuff my husband has it all the time thank you will be getting more soon as I need it 15 July 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, highly recommend Used on my car after a long motorway trip to remove the bird droppings and bugs. Used for the first time abd was amazed with the quick resukys. Am going to purchase more. 07 September 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great on Bugs Bought one of these because of the good weather we have been enjoying, bugs squashed on mass. I have bugs on the windscreen, grill, bumper and number plate and i used this product with great effect. Used a normal sponge, followed instructions and it was very effective. Thanks Halfords and thanks Simoniz.. 07 July 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by simonz Bug shifter - best thing since slice bread !! I have been using this product for at least 2 years, i live on the coast of wales , and you can imagine the amount of seegul mess, along with other birds of prey deposit on my car. Once i spray the simonz bug shifter on the car and all you need to do is gently wipe of with kithen roll or a soft clorth. It all comes off with ease. If the Bird mess has dried, i find it best to spray on and just hold the cloth on the area for a few seconds and then gentlt wipe, may need a couple of squirts but it removes without leaving any residue. I dont understand why the other comment on hers says it doersnt work , becuase if it can shift the seegul mess it will certainly shift their bugs of their windscreen and bumpers. It works on body work aswell as glass. I am purchasing 3 more bottles on sunday at the shrewsbury store while on my travels. 08 May 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Well I bought this on a whim as I had quite a few nasty blobs of bird poo and a few bugs on my car that just weren't shifting with shampoo and I didn't want to risk something harsher.. I used this exactly as per the instructions and hey presto, everything came off clean with a paper towel. Did not see any of the issues the other reviewer saw, especially as these were bugs shampoo failed to shift. Brilliant product if used correctly, but does need the time suggested on pack to remove the stains. 12 December 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy this!! Buy a bug sponge instead. I do a motorway run about once a week so in the summer I end up reducing the bug population in the UK. I purchased the Simoniz Bug Shifter after it won the auto express product test. Previously I had used the Car Plan Bug Blitz but was not completely happy with its performance so I thought I would try the Simoniz Bug Shifter. Well the Car Plan Bug Blitz was BETTER than the Simoniz (Auto Express did not have the Car Plan Bug Blitz as part of it's test). Used the Simoniz twice and it did not even remove half the dead insects stuck to the front of my car and left a greasy type residue on some areas of the front of my car when wiped off with an Autoglym microfibre cloth (My car is a 2011 BMW 5 Series F10 Saloon). Also when using the Simoniz to remove bird droppings from a car's paintwork it seems to remove any wax protection you may have on your car. However, the best method for removing dead insects stuck to the bumper and front of your car especially after a motorway run is still a wash with car shampoo AND A BUG REMOVING CAR SPONGE. These are sold by Halfords and are basically a sponge covered with a polyester mesh. I for one will definately not be buying any more bug removing sprays but may try the impregnated Car Plan Bug Blitz car wipes next time though I doubt they will be better than washing the front of the car with a Bug Sponge and car shampoo. 04 August 2012
