    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.
