IT would be helpful to post a picture or two of your ride. Why? First we love pictures. Second it would be helpful to see what we are dealing with.

You may need to restore your paint by having to re-cut and buff the paint with the proper materials and cutting and buffing pads. The top layer of the clear coat could be so contaminated that it needs to be removed. Again pictures help here. 

Have you tried to clay bar the car yet?
