OMG the amount of bugs on my front bumper!!!

Wow, my front bumper sure takes on a lot of bugs. Looked at it tonight, thought to myself am I driving a Cadenza or a RV? Holy crap!!! Am I the only one that has an issue with A LOT of bugs on my bumper? Can this be prevented?

Follow real close behind another Cadenza, as the first Cadenza will suck up
all the bugs in both lanes each side of it as well as the lane it is in.
Don't know as it is the Cadenza as my K900 show bugs to.
Try a real good car wax on it. Will not stop the bugs, but makes them come
off easier

Well we have a slight problem with that idea, I don't see any other Cadenza's around. Since buying mine, I've seen one other Cadenza on the road.


I've heard about the wax thing. I believe there's also sprays you can apply after a wash to help ensure those bugs don't stick around. I'll look into, or just tell the wife we need to wash it more.

Before a long trips I apply a thin layer of liquid soap on front and rear bumpers. It makes it much easier to take bugs and soot on the rear bumper off, when washing my car after trip.

Believe it or not but using a dryer sheet (Bounce) and just water will remove the bugs really easily and doesn't harm your paint at all. I've done it many times on my cars as we do have some bugs here is south Florida.

Interesting, does it have to be a new dryer sheet or can I just use the used ones that I throw out? Do you soak the dryer sheet in water of just spray on water and wipe off with dry sheet?

I've always used a new one but an old one would work too. It's the "fabric" of the sheet that does the trick as it's so fine. Just wet the sheet with your hose and use a gentle stream of water as you wipe the sheet over the front of your car and voila they're gone.
