Looks like an oil or some kind of a stain. Could it by any chance be residue left over from driving through wet cement?

You tried a claybar and that did not work so I would go to Scratch X next.

yeah I mean the fade.. when i rub my hand over it. It doesnt feel glossy at all. Feel like there its some sort of substance laying on top of the clear coat. If you get a wet cloth rub it, it looks like your removing it untill it drys and then turns a lighter color.

Note (Willwren): SOME 2000+ have a factory rough finish to prevent this. Need to clarify; need more research.

Note: Can try buffing may only be clearcoat damage
