Hi, tried removing a 'super bug splatter' mark on my hood this am and can't touch it. Used tar and bug remover and tried wax but it's like the paint is stained. Any one please help? Other bug marks seem to come out with a bit of rubbing. Thanks Hniel 335i '2010, Msport

It sounds like the paint may have been etched by the acid in the bug. You should polish the area.

Compound I had from a number of years ago and an old battery operated polisher. I' successfully removed marks from mirror and will next work on main splatter mark on hood. Seems to be working. Thanks again. Hniel
