    The outside of the window pillars on my X5 have gone all stained. The black bits around the windows also have like a corroded swirl all over it, like an oil spill in water. Has anyone else seen this and if so how do i fix, clean or treat this?
    Thanks

    I used to get it on the shadowline on my past e46's and it used to polish off. But, I have seen it really bad where polish has not resolved the issue.

    Get it on my e91 too, when I can be bothered to polish it it normally comes off with some AG super resin and elbow grease. (not really into polishing cars myself but I guess any polish type stuff will work just as well)
