I live an apartment complex where we have assigned parking spots, and mine is directly under a pine tree that likes to drop sap on my car once in a while. I used to have a motorcycle that would always have sap on it too. I have never found any product that is good at getting sap off both paint and glass. Does anyone know of any cleaner that would take sap off pretty well? Thanks.

Clay bars are reputed to work absolutely best for getting off stuff like sap. Pretty much every major cleaning/wax company, including Meguiars, sells a clay bar. Just pick one as you like and give it a try, though count on some serious elbow grease.

A claybar shouldn't require elbow grease, but it does require a lot of time. It should remove the sap, but be warned that it'll remove wax as well. I clay once a year because it's so time intensive; I get the feeling you're looking for something that'll remove the sap every time you wash. If that's the case, lots of companies make bug and tar removers; I'd look to those.

Thanks for the suggestions, I did end up using a bug/tar remover when I washed/waxed my car last night, and it worked pretty well, took a little work, but I got it off. I waxed my car last night with Meguiar's gold class and man does it look good 8) !! I'm gonna take some pics later today and post them.
