Exactly. We all might be talking about different things lol. For me it was on a white car, so the brown was easy to see, and it was on back of the car where water pooled.

Inside the trunk well. Not sure how well you can tell. Similar spots appeared smaller on various areas of the vehicle exterior but I think I have buffed them all out. Haven't done anything in the trunk well except wash. Is this the same thing others have experienced?

Same color. Mine was more of a line, not spots like that. I think because that's how the water dried after a car wash on mine, in a line.

That looks troubling. If you haven't already, look into some claybar to clean that up gently.

The trunk area is pretty bad for holding water after a wash.

As for eco's paint, a good detailing is best. I never found automatic washes be to very good, and if it's applying a somme kinf of wax in the process, it's probably sealing in some dirt.

If you can get a couple of buckets with grit guards, some nice towels, using a lot of running water and a gentle hand will go a long way for your paint.

Don't know that I could get a clay bar in there easily but I know that Maguire's scratch x2.0 and some elbow grease will remove it. Just can't figure out why it keeps coming back in areas where water doesn't pool. I get why it's doing it here. Poor design! I might take it through the laser wash again this week and see if the spots come back right away. If they do then that's the culprit. If it takes a couple months again then it's just poor quality clear coat imo.

I did my best to get pictures in the dark, because you can see the browning in the paint the best. It does look like bad wax build-up, as some of it looks removed after I did a clay job, compound, and wax. I might have to really go to town next time and really focus on stripping that build-up off, because it seems like I made a dent in that build-up
