    Just wash as normal and it should come off within a couple of washes. If not clay bar the car.

    Yeah agree with above. Maybe worth the clay bar treatment anyway for the sake of 12 (if you go for the Megs that is).

    That should sort it out and make your car look all nice!

    when i picked up my car it had a small patch of t-sap on it as the previous owner kept it outside since it was new

    so i got rid of it by using some t-cut on it and then applying a layer of wax

    you aren't meant to use t-cut on new paint but as it was a small area it was ok to do so, now the sap has gone!

    A good wash straight away, try warm water & a good polish,if no success use a clay bar but make sure you know what your doing with it, in this cold weather.
    I would think a wash & polish would cure it , unless its etched the paint very badly.
