    What is the best way to clean rubber marks off of the bumper of a car? Say, for instance, an Alpine White BMW sedan?

    Thanks!

    I'd get some Meguires Crystal polish. Finish off with some Techwax.

    Automotive tar remover would do the trick

    Do you think my Z5 (zaino bros) would get it out? or, do I need something stronger?

    Should I just drop at my buddy's body shop?

    The same thing you would use to clean rubber marks off of the bumper of any car. Say, for instance, a candy white Chrysler lebaron 2door coupe.....

    You're welcome!

    That isn't going to affect the paint underneath?

    I have a pic I can send someone if they want to post it...

    Oh, that does suck... luckily it's so damned hot here that the paint dries pretty much the instant it hits the asphalt!

    I was behind a cement truck and he dropped some on the highway, I couldn't avoid it and ended up having it dry on my rockers. Vinegar seemed to work quite well.

    I've had lots of practice removing rubber marks, and WD 40 or Plexus does the best job without causing any residual damage.
