What to do with this in my paint

Ok so after i washed my car for the first time 2 weeks ago since the dealership did such a horrible job i noticed these little brown specs all over the car( worse in some spots than others ) so i did some research watched some videos and all that jazz. Then today after I got home from work I clayed,swirl x, then waxed my hood ONLY just to see if it worked Well not all of those spots came out, And I CLAYED the crap out of it. Its better but is still there so now I'm wondering what to do next without spending an arm and leg. This is the worst area on the trunk lid not that bad everywhere else but noticeable

Ouch, looks like its in the paint. U may have to wet sand it and use a high speed buffer.

I would take it to the dealer and raise the questions because it does look like it's in the paint and would have had to happen shortly after application

It's hard to trust anyone at the dealer. I always tell them them to not wash my car. They usually have young porters getting paid 8-10 per hour that don't care how they wash the car, or use dirty rags that been dropped on the ground to wash customers cars.

Well only problem with that is its a 2010 and I'm not so sure it's in the paint not saying its not. But I think the person that had it before me parked it under a pine tree every day cause I just cleaned out a ton of pine needles from under the hood on the drivers side by that sound tube thing. Sure hope wet sanding is the last resort though

What sucks is I never saw any of this when I went over the car neither did my wife or buddy that was there the day I test drove it. But I sure see it now

They sell it at autozone... Just make sure it's bug and tar not a solvent that will eat your paint
