[SIZE=7]I strongly dislike sap!

Im buying my m3 cosmos BLACK 95 m3.

Its absolutly fantastic, practically perfect fora a 10 year old car.


PROBLEM

only on the top of the car....(reason why i think this is an easy fix)top of the car meaning hood, trunk, roof...no side panels...



there are dots spreaded everywhere with wax along the outside of them... im very sure its little sap dots...cuz u could knick them off with ur fingure nail...but i only did that with one or 2 cuz i didnt wanna scratch the paint.

What can i do to get these off...theres like 400 of them all on the car!. ARGG


What should i do>? how do i take these off.

any1 think a body shop could help me out if I needed it?


thanks

-Andrew

There are commercial sap removers, though they do strip wax off. Can you post a picture of some? Some saps can mess up the paint.

Clay or 3M Tar/Adhesive remover.....The problem with using clay is if its real polluted, you may end up impregnating the clay with little hard balls, (LMAO, sounded kind of funny) and you COULD scratch. I would try to soften them up and remove with the 3M.....Then clay the surface....polish, seal....

Easy tiger!
Go to your local auto paint store or Pep Boys/Kragen/ Walmart/ etc....Look/ask for a Mothers Clay Bar Kit, Clay Magic Clay kit. Meguiras Clay kit. Also look/ask for 3M Tar & Adhesive remover.

Clay works very well for small specs of sap 2-3mm but if you have larger dots of sap 10-15mm then isopropyl alcohol will dissolve the sap.

Clay bar will do the trick without damaging your paintwork or removing your wax.

Hey thanks for all the comments

Yup I love my m3. Its awsome

Couple problems though.

oh btw the sap spot is slowly coming off with all the washing ive been doing.

Problem, any1 with a black car will know what im talking about. Little specs of anything, sap, dirt, shit, .....anything that rise's off the paint...

Ya the wax parts around all these little things making the car looking dirty as all get out.

what should i do to get all these things off.

One more thing it seems to me my paint is actually very rough....in my opinion. In fact it is. Ive washed, waxed, glazed. Still very rough on the hood and trunk. I need some suggestions to get all this shit off my car. Its making it feel like crap. I want my paint to be like my old 328is where u could slide a towel over it and it would just fly right off.

I dont like this rough feel.

Please help me

Do I really need my car to get pro detailed or somthing?? whats up!
