WD- 40 will take that off. I know from experience.
You may want to spray or apply the WD & let it stand for about five minutes. This will have a "melting" affect on the tar, then should wipe right off.

WD-40 would work, but you need to be careful not to use too much.
Any mild abrasive would be a bad idea unless you plan to re-polish the lens with a polishing kit afterwards.

Bug and tar remover might also do the trick as will some paste waxes.

You might want to ask your dealer [presuming you have good terms with their service department] for a detailer recommendation to avoid messing up an expensive lens.

Re: Road Tar on Headlight Lens

Well I used WD-40. It worked. Looks good. The tar was very thick and I had to let it set for about 15 minutes. Then it came off very easy.
