Cleaning paint from bird droppings

I can't speak for the BMW paint, but I have a speedy solution to bird dropping and many other deposits on the car. I always carry a 2 liter bottle of seltzer water and paper towels in the trunk of the car. Whenever I get bird droppings on the car, I immediately get out the seltzer water and flood the stain. It bubbles up the droppings right away and then you can gently wipe away the dropping. On any car, if you don't get the droppings up as soon as possible, you can permanently damage your paint. I learned about this in 1990 when a goose let loose on the hood of my new black Lincoln and a gas station attendant came out with a bottle of seltzer. I have been sharing this gem ever since. Make sure you get seltzer, not club soda as this will often contain sodium.

there are a lot of leather repair guys. Usually they work for funiture companies. The leather can be cleaned and painted with special dye.

Hyundai 2008 Azera Limited


There have been a lot of complaints lately of newer Hyundais having a "soft" clear coat. Hyundai has not recalled any of these vehicles yet, but I would strongly recommend taking it to the dealer and try to get it fixed under warranty. You have a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty specifically for the paint, unfortunately though, it is up to the dealer's discretion as to whether or not it is a "significant" problem. Never hurts to try though.
