My parents went on a long trip few weeks ago and never bothered to wash the van till today and I had a hell of a time trying to remove the bugs... I dindn't have much luck.. theres still ALOT left

Meguires Paint cleaner....it takes oxidation and all sorts of crap off...just you need to wax afterwards cause it strips everything with it.
My b/f does a lot of highway driving so I grab a friend, a water bottle, an electric buffer and Zymol's pre-wax cleaner. Make sure the area is always wet or you are going to burn through the clear coat because of the heat. Have your friend spray the area often while you are doing this. Afterwards, wax with a caranuba wax for protection.
For the future, a hot bucket of car soap should do the trick before the bugs get glued on. :D

AFTER doing all that, their are places that sell some sort of wrap thats a very thin sticky plastic like layer that covers the front bumper. i think its called "starwrap" or something like that? i had to advertise this for my marketing ed class.

erm.. read it somewhere but forgot where,

next time b4 u go on a h/w drive, to prevent the bugs from sticking to the front of the car,

spray the front end with some of the cooking grease, erm... u know, those canned stuff that u spray on the baking pans and stuff before u pour in ur baking mix...

spray some of those on and the bugs will slide off... but don't forget to clean up once u've reached ur destination.
