Tardis never fails to impress, but difficult to get in smaller quantities these days. Perhaps not for continued use on cars with lots of bare plastic sill/skirt areas like the MINI as Derek already stated.

I have car pro. Don't think it's the best stuff generally have to really soak and agrivate the tar on bit bits or on an unkept car.

not that we want to admit to - I always found it handy for isolated spot removal, at a tenth of the price of the AG Tar Remover. Wasn't bother too much in the days of carnauba wax, easy enough to wax the area after tar removal; no idea what white spirit does to ceramic coatings - perhaps nothing more than a fuel spill or other tar removing products

My neighbour used our Race Glaze Glue & Tar product, comes in a 250ml spray bottle, and is highly concentrated.
The science of these products is that the stronger solvents cost more, so bulk products sound better value but you use more, and it takes more time. More scrubbing.
He had previously used a Dr Who name related product, simply no comparison.

Part of me thinks that a lot of these branded tar removers are just white spirit in a bottle with added water flushing properties, but as always I might be wrong.

Tardis fits the bill at ~£15 for 5 litres and I can feel safe knowing that’s it’s a well used product designed for the task in hand. I imagine that white spirit would work equally well and equally as safe if you take the correct precautions.
