If you have access to a ROB I will send you some polishing compounds.

You really need to polish it out. It looks like the CC is etched similar to leaving bird poo on the finish.

drive it to a bodyshop or a detail place and ask then to high speed polish it for you. (may need a 2000 or 2500 grit sanding first)

Not worth the cost for this car guys. Its not noticable unless it has direct light on it like a flash. If a potential buyer notices, I will look into it. Thanks for the suggestions though

If you can find it, maybe try 3000 grit paper, and then ScratchX? I don't know how likely it is that you can get the paper scratches out by hand though.

3M medium grit rubbing compound (liquid not paste) then follow up with 3M fine cut rubbing compound (takes out 1500 grit and finer swirls). Use microfiber towels to apply and remove. It should come out.
