    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WD-40 gets better results! Be warned, this stuff is a white polish like liquid that goes EVERYWHERE and is murder to get back off. Your car will look like it has been through a cement factory because of the overspray and will take weeks to remove from plastic trim. Next time I'm in Hereford (my nearest store & over 40 miles away), I shall do a little demonstration for the manager on their car! Halfords, listen to your customers - discontinue this and sell more WD-40 or peanut butter as they both do a better job

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the job. Had been looking for a long time to find a good tar remover. My red body paint had been ruined due to the tar and just didn't look it's usual self. £3.50, what could be better. It had been on for months, 20 minutes later. Looking as good as new! It needs a wash after as it leaves a residue. But it can be wiped away with a normal microfibre cloth. Job done! Amazing for the price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should of read the reviews..... Ok. I wanted proper tfr remover, but my local Halfords only had this. Bought it for my vw t5 which is white and got tar speckles up the side. Needless to say this stuff did absolutely nothing. It didn't even get off the dead bugs on the bonnet. I might aswell rubbed my van with my t-shirt. 1 star rating is being generous as there in no zero star option. utter cack, going autoglym nexttime

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disaster... Bought for motorbike screen & fairings so tried it out on one of my bikes - thought it was OK at first then noticed white chalky speckles over the rest of the bike - had to take it out & wash the whole bike. Next day I noticed my other bike (parked 4ft away in garage) was just as bad. It had to get a full wash too. The overspray covers everything within 6ft and dries to hard-to-remove white spots. Only redeeming factor was that spray-bottle (when emptied & cleaned-out) was handy for paraffin...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for bugs and bird deposits Used this product during and after long drives down through France. Very effective at removing dead bugs from the windscreen, bonnet and front of the car. Easy to use, albeit the pump action is not perfect. Stow it in your car with some rags and it is ideal for the en route pit stops.

    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..
