some ham, bell pepper, cheese and tomato should do the trick. Denver omelet FTW!

Looks like some have given their ideas. I'd try them, but I think I'd also call my insurance company. I'm sure the deductable is less than the cost of getting the car recleared. And if it's considered vandalism, your rates may not be affected.

file a police report if you decide to go through insurance, if your deductible is low enough and you do have to get repainted and recleared it will definitely save you in the long run

Punks. Bug and Tar remover works okay as well. Purple Power cut with water works too. I must say though, I don't know how well they will work having been on there so long...........I imagine the vinegar/water works well. Works great on windshields and water spots too.

Hyar in GAWGA, one's testicles would be plucked hair by hair (just before the boys with the banjos showed up!) Double punishment. Nothin' like a little pig squeelin' after someone's done some egg layin'!

Oh yeah,
Advance Auto or Auto Zone has a decal and sticker remover spray. I have used it numerous times on clear coats where people had put stickers on their car and it left glue. It is absolutely phenomenal at getting things off paint. Has not hurt paint of vehicles that it was used on at all. Wash the area good when you are done and then give it a little wax. All better. In fact, I would darn well bet that stuff will take the egg right off.

Because the egg yolk is acidic goo-gone will only help with removing the stuck on egg yolk. because your car has had egg on it for over 48 hours theres almost no chance of salvaging your paint job. the only thing you can really hope is that you had a good layer of wax over the area and that it didn't eat all the way through it before drying.

This.

Generally speaking, these sorts of events are covered under comprehensive in a full coverage policy. Should you decide to turn it in, most insurance companies will not up your rates, but then again, you may still be out your deductible.

If I had a low deductible of around @ $250 or so, I would go ahead and consider turning it in to the insurance company.

If you, like most people, opted to knock your deductible into the $500+ range, first I would go to a body shop or professional detailer and see if the stains can be polished out. As said, it will compromise the thickness of your clear coat, but it may still be better than shelling (pun intended) out for a new paint job. If they are knowledgeable and nice about it, they may let you know if it can be fixed up front, rather than charge labor for a full detail job that would prove useless in the end anyway.

If it doesn't come out and it really bothers you, it might be worth it to pay out the deductible and allow the insurance company to get it properly repaired. Insurance on these cars is not cheap, so you might as well use it for what it's intended for.

pressure washer, good hand scrub, clay bar.

If those dont work, try sticking bologna to the stained spots. Bologna will take anything off a car.
