Default Car got egged, now spidering

hey, i posted this on my audi forum but didnt get much response, so i want to know what you guys think.

hey, my quartz grey a4 got egged last night. by the location of my car and the eggs landing spot, it was throw from a moving car, so it was thrown really hard. (it was behind my driver side backseat door, i found splatters on my friends car hood that i was parked behind) i dont know how long it sat on my car before i realized it, probably 3-4 hours. then i got home and sprayed the car off and tired to get most of the egg off with a sponge. i backed it into the driveway so no sun would hit the spot until i was able to clean it better. figures my dad moved the car so the sun was directly on the spot. now the paint is spider webbing were the initial impact hit.

what can i do do clean this? i think the spiderweb is now etched into the paint but i can feel it slightly. the car is only 2 months old to me and a CPO, so i dont know the previous detail history, like when it was last waxed and whatnot. im so pissed at these punks. it was in a nice neighborhood with way nicer cars parked all over the block (s63, gt500kr, 2 z06 and about 15 bmws)

Mr. Clean magic eraser pads, try that. It removes like scuff marks, sharpie and permanent markers and just about everything in writing. It doesn't seem to effect the paint or clearcoat, because it still looks the same and feels fine. wish i had a paint meter

i used one and it dulled my paint pretty bad. Tried polishing and waxing and everything, nothing would get rid of it. so be careful with them.

WHOA...be very careful before using those things... I've had some pretty bad experiences w/ paint and those pads.

....the "spider web" pattern is where the shell broke apart on impact and chipped away the paint. Unfortunately, it's been my experience that you can't do much with that. A professional detailer (or someone with the tools, products and know-how) may be able to help lessen the appearance of the affected area though. As for the remnants of the egg, get yourself a claybar and try that. ....and I would stop using dish sponges to wash your car.

+1 go to a body shop/paint shop and have them buff and hand glaze your car, it will look 100% better. i did this to a 1979 ford that had scratches and haze ALLLLLLL over it, and after the buff and hand glaze, the truck looked showroom new

....a professional detailer or a fellow member with the experience, tools & products would be the best bet. Also, keep in mind that the pattern on the paint is likely permanent (i.e. through the clear & possibly down to the primer).

I use steel woll, try the super fine oct4 (0000) little bit of windex as a lubricant and polish away!

i totally agree being careful with them, I've only used them to remove some mysterious marker that got on my moms car and her paint didnt dull or smooth, so im not sure.

Another trick you might like to try is to use toothpaste. The abrasives in toothpaste are very fine (some use diatoms) and can do a really nice job of polishing out pits and minor surfaces scratches in many materials. Just make sure to use light pressure, a soft cloth and lubricate well. Windex is very useful for that purpose.

anyway you can describe your process on this.
i accidentally scrubbed my windshield with a dish pad trying to rub off a sticker someone put on and now have some minor scratches in a corner of my windshield. its not in my line of sight but its annoying.
steelwool (0000) what is this? any links please!

i tried toothpaste and it didnt seem to do anything. how long should i buff with toothpaste for??
