I Didn't realise they have high edges so maybe a light polish wouldn't be a good idea

As for chasing the company to repair / replace the sticker there is no point as its a couple of Romanian cowboys in a car park with a couple of jet washers.
All I wanted was for them to jet wash the car with no soap and before I knew it they had sprayed TFR all over it.
I gave totally dynamic a call yesterday, they are the guys who wrapped my M2's roof and spoke to them regarding your situation and they advised against machine polishing it, they suggested using black T-CUT and buff off afterwards, that could well cover those stains, for the sake of a few quid i'd try that first.

I would add additional caution to using polish on matt wrapped anything - the 'sticker' or wrapped areas tend to be porous, as such the polishing oils sink into them leaving smeary white marks that can't be removed even with Eraser or IPA.

There is a very real chance you will make it far worse than it is now as hard as it is!

OP - where are you based?

I'm wondering if something like this would mask it (reasonably permanently).

You can machine polish them just don't be to heavy on the pressure

His have high edges so he would have to be very very careful he doesn't catch edge but it can be done

I hope for your sanity that you voted Brexit? If not, I bet you would now!
