Anyways, I was wondering was the brown was too, and then one day after a car wash, I dried it right there at the place, and the brown was from the car wash. I don't know if a combination of all the colorful suds made brown, or if it was something else, but I had the brown. After that I started drying it right then and there and the brown area slowly got smaller, but never fully went away. Scrubbing it would of burned the clear coat.

Anyways, if it's the same thing I had, it's from the car wash, and a professional should have no problems getting rid of it.
Interesting! If I remember right the new Mustang trunks seem to collect water as they slope down toward the back window, but just before getting to the edge it slopes back up leaving a nice place for water and the like to collect... hmmm this would make a good place for dirt and whatnot to collect causing the look.
