    theres an alloy wheel cleaner that gets it off but not sure wether it would be ok on paintwork. as far as i know it sounds as if its tar from the road on your car. it is difficult but with the correct cleaning stuff it does come off with a bit of elbow grease

    Dap of T cut left for a bit usually sorts that out, then correct paintwork after with some good wax/polish
