    I'd take it back personally and ask them to sort it.

    other than the above, t-cut or similar would remove it... might as well get them to put the effort in though seeing as they are the ones that didn;t take enough care not to spray your car

    dont be fooled. it might not be paint or laquer. dont supose u were parked under or near a tree was ya. just that in the summer and hot weather the trees must drop summin off the leaves and it sticks to your car. its goes all hard. if it is what i say it is then it will just wash off
