    Hi once more..

    There are some black splatter marks on one of my wheel arches. They appear nowhere else, and i don't have any sure idea what caused it, but it is baked in hard. Picture below.
    Anyone got an idea best way to try tackle these marks? They seem level with the surface, i can detect nothing (or as good as nothing) above surface of paint by touch. They were there when i bought the car, and are not as visible as this slightly zoomed in image suggests.
    (Please excuse bad picture). Thanks in advance.

    I spray Autosmart Tardis once a year on my car. It is brilliant, you spray it on and in a few seconds, where you thought you had clean paint, you see tar runs running down your car as it melts the tar. You then just wipe the runs off and it does not need any hard rubbing which protects your paint from streaks.

    You have to remember to apply polish as it also strips the polish off.

    BBmatic, if you ask me it's tar.

    I had this the other day on my 8er behind all 4 arches and what removed it the quickest was Turtle Wax Gloss Guard. -Even quicker and much more effective than tar remover. The stuff pretty much smells like petrol, so no wonder it removed it. Also there's no need to wax/re-protect the area as this will!

    Hope this helps.
