Brand new, stains in clear coat?
Just signed up, just got a new Accord 2.0T in white. Only had it about a week so far (150 miles as of day), and I noticed I already had some brown spots kicked up on the rear bumper from my wheels. I thought it was just dirt, but as I was trying to wash it away yesterday, it seems like they did fade off a little, but the spots still remain, and they're very noticeable. Tried running my finger on them to see if it was just really stuck on dirt, but cannot feel anything to grab, and my nail isn't scraping any of it off. I bought a bottle of Turtle Wax Bug/Tar remover and tried that today, and that didn't work either.
My question is, does anyone know any other options to try cleaning the stains off? Is it possible that my clearcoat is now stained somehow? Defective paint/clear coat on the bumper?
I'm even more curious if anyone else who has the platinum white pearl model has run into this same issue, where splashes are not cleaning off very well.
I've attached pictures of one of the rear bumpers to show the spots. Any advice would be appreciated.
