Is it caked onto your car? Claybar will remove EVERYTHING
But will probably induce some light marring to your clearcoat, then you'll need a cut polish

You could try quick detailer, if that doesnt work get some poorboys all purpose cleaner.

That stuff works wonders, it removed huge caked on bug splatter from my front

Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover is great for sap removal and is very safe for use on paint. Keep in mind that if the sap has been on the paint for a long time, a stain may remain on the paint even after the sap is removed.

My dad's X3 was parked under a tree for two months straight almost... I tried washing and waxing but the paint is pretty fucked up, definitely will be claying it eventually, although it is a lease return so meh.

Paint shines but the surface is sorta bumpy, like not little dirty bumps but serious reflection bumps...

So thanks for the advice guys!

Try some hot soapy water. Then try products such as goo gone. If it is really caked in there, the claybar will most likely mar the paint a little like stated above.

It can be done with a razor blade, but I would highly be against doing that if you don't know what you're doing.
