Factory Vinyl Damage

So I bought my new 2011 mustang almost 2 months ago and the dealership was nice enough to throw in some vinyl stripes for me. They are flat black to match the side stripe. Before my first wax (The car's I mean), I asked on here if I could wax over them or should I work around them and I was told to wax over them, so I did. After the wax the vinyls looked ok, but after it rained they became gray and you can see where I waxed over them in circular motion. I washed my car today thinking it would go away but no luck. Does anyone know how I can restore them? They are $450 stickers.

There is a compound you can buy at the auto store that breaks down wax. Also you can use dish soap cause it cuts wax but not quite as good. Might take several scrubbings. Try the dish soap and use a rag and rub over it. Don't rub real hard though. Dry it off and see how it looks
