BIRDS ATTRACTED TO SYNERGY GREEN?!?!?!

Im starting to get veryyy frustrated walking out to my car every single day seeing bird s*** all over it...i wash it off and the next day its got more on it....i can pull into a store for ten minutes with cars parked on either side of me and walk out and theres droppings on it...i hardly ever park under a tree but that still doesnt help...idk if its the synergy green color that they like or what but its starting to get very annoying!!!

It seems they are always attracted to newly cleaned cars for some reason :(

Can't speak for green, but bees and insects love yellow.

I use to own a 98 Z34 and birds loves that car either by dumping on it or flying in to it and commiting suicide. more birds died from that car then any other that I owned.

lmao..i feel your pain!

spending 2 hours or so on a wash and 20 minutes later you get a fresh pile of bird droppings all over your car..

very frustrating indeed.

Very true. I can't believe all the bugs that end up on mine.

Inferno orange....

The insects and tiny spiders apparently love Inferno Orange metallic. I can wash the car, and then have to move the tiny bugs away while trying to apply wax or spray detailer. Very annoying!

I agree with this. While I'm trying to wax my car I have to sit there and blow the bugs off of my car.

Birds don't discriminate color, only freshly cleaned cars. They're an Equal Opportunity S**tter.

HAHA that post is fantastic; good political joke too. +1

I've never had any real problem with birds doing their business on my car...then again I only wash it once and a while. I do notice that the bugs seem to be attracted to the car, and that they tend to get hit while I'm driving and get stuck in the grill and on the windshield. I feel bad for you guys; where I live we don't have many birds or gulls, so there isn't much to worry about!

This is a funny read. I was not going to wash my car until I saw Segul Crap on my mirror and front grill. It was quite disgusting. About the insects, I have had every type and some I've never seen before except on my car. If my phone was charged I was going to take a picture of a lady bug on my car. Oh well I am sure the bug will show up again. I have had a black car a blue car and white car, never have I had this huge of a bug problem. I am thinking of rigging a bug zapper over the roof of my car.
