Help!! Bird stained my Alpine White E70

I have a number of bird stains on my Alpine White X5, thus far I've washed, clayed, washed again and used Griot's #2 & 3 polish in my DA without success. What can I try next?

Bird stains are extremely difficult to remove--there's a chance it damaged the full thickness of the clear coat. I would try a 3000 grit wet sand and redo the two step polish and report back.

I second this recommendation.
I have never used any Griots polish/compounds but as long as it didnt get through the clear, using the 3000 and buffing should get it.

Bad thing with bird poop is it etches the clear fast. You need to get it off your car as soon as possible.
