Bug Splatter

So I picked up my new Mineral White 335i on Friday then took a 1000 mile road trip. My front bumper now looks like a pest control nightmare, hundreds of deep squashes!

Wanting to give my car its first good wash and wax but was looking for suggestions on getting rid of these bug splats that would avoid marring/swirls.

Any other suggestions for this first wash and treatment would also be greatly appreciated as my last car (2000 civic) was not near as beautiful and didnt require near as much love.

hmm

Why was this moved to dealer feedback/vehicle problems? It seems just as related to detailing as any thread in detailing as I am talking about CLEANING the vehicle?

i would power wash and soap/sponge it off. next time ur going on a trip like that spray and apply adams sealant on the whole front bumper. u'll be able to simply hose off the bugs when u return.
