Need help: cleaning bird poop on Llumar clear film

We had Llumar full hood, fenders, and bumper installed on my wife's M Coupe about 30 days ago. She does not drive the car in the rain.

Yesterday, sometime between 9 am and 2 pm, bird got to the hood. Outside temp was about 70 deg F but it was sunny. She removed the poop as soon as she saw it with microfiber and quick detailer, but it left orange stains. I washed the car at home last night, tried a few things, but I can't remove the stains.

Any advice? Is this typical for Llumar clear film?

My M coupe has Xpel on it... about 10 years of service, and I have never had a staining issue.

Jon,

No problem what will take that off is a paint cleaner. PC are chemical based polishes that are designed to remove surface stains, containment, etc. If your looking for OTC, Megs Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner is available every where. With the application use cotton to apply, it gets a much better grip on the surface than MF towels.
