The lass at work mentioned this, neither of us have tried it. Might have to give it a go some time.

I personally think if you wax your car on a regular basis, then WD40 will just eat through what you build up! Clay bar for the win.

any tar remover will strip the wax in the treated area, therefore reapply wax to that area once dried. Agreed that clay bars produce excellent results, but I believe this will also strip the wax as they remove everything when used properly.

This guy's just got a recommendation from someone on my works online mailing list - and with a name like Gary Norrie he's certainly not eastern european. If he continues to get good reviews I'll probably use him myself
