    Try the brush with the cleaner you have. You may just need to agitate it to help lift it off of the plastic. Remember, use a soft bristled brush! Stiff bristles can make it worse and introduce...

    Congrats on the new car! Don't forget to double check the PSI on your tires (winters and OEMs). Dealers are notorious for leaving them overinflated.
