Weird rust spots on my M3

ok so i haven't washed my car in 2 weeks, and just got it washed today , but it still looks dirty , i see orange rust spots all over the bumpers , i tried using some windex on a cloth to try and clean it (all i had at the time ) and it works (kinda) , but i have to rub it really hard ,anyone know of something i can use to clean it off?


my car is only like 4 months old ,maybe i have to take it in to get detailed and waxed ?

The bumpers aren't metal. You sure it isn't road debris/dirt?

maybe its the exhaust heat that like baked it on there, cuz the front bumper is easy to clean all the marks

so far using the windex and the microfiber cloth cleaned most of it off

Like others said, I think its rail dust. Clay it. This needs to be done even on a brand new car. I've never heard of dealers actually treating the finish right otherwise they'd do this. Then after the clay, polish and wax or apply a protectant.

This thread should go in the detailing section.


Cheers.
