My dad gets it on his porsche all the time outside his house! It comes off with ease with hot soapy water as antsuno said :D
The texture of it is really odd, and when its on your windscreen the sun glistens it and his harder to see out of :mad:

try WD40 on a cloth...

or autoglym tar spot remover

basically something with a solvent base turps will remove it but im not 100% sure it'll be safe on the car paintwork :eek:

if it is fresh as hot as you can put your hand in water with a bit more than usual car shampoo cuts through it....

maguirers clay kit will remove £23 out of halfords very effective,use the emulsion while rubbing the clay on the paint surface,time consuming but it works(y)
