Gyeon tar staining paintwork :(

So today was officially meant to be Prep day in preparation for Q2 MOHS.
Spent a small fortune on Gyeon recently and couldnt wait to get stuck in with my new products.
Started by washing with the new Q2M Bathe+ and after drying went around the car panel by panel using the Q2M Iron & Clay which i've got to admit was so easy and quick to use, great combination.
Car washed and dried again and up to this point Gyeon is my new best friend.
After inspecting the paintwork and noticing a few minor Tar Spots i broke out the Q2m Tar. Sprayed it on, left it to dwell 3 or so minutes and wiped it off with a clean microfibre. (Basically as per the instructions)

Result: The rear bumper quarters of my pristine White GTI 35 are now stained PINK !!!
I've tried my best to capture the damage but to the naked eye its more than obvious.

PINK Staining more obvious to the camera when wet:

Distinct colour difference between Bumper & Panel :



To say i'm gutted is an understatement. Up to now i've tried APC at various strengths, Paint Cleaner & Tardis with little or no effect.

Any ideas you may have will be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if a light polish would resolve this? Not the ideal scenario I know ...

Similar happened to a slight curb mark on one of my alloys - the chip is now stained pink.

Are the dyes in this too strong? Everything else in the range is top-notch.

Is it just me that can't see the difference?

Bumpers are usually a very slightly different shade anyway

I can see the pink on my phone too.

Sorry to hear this mate. It's the sort of complaint that can make or brake a company based on how they deal with it for me.

Good luck getting it sorted, I'm sure a polish would do the job?

It can make or break a company but they still only have the OP's word for it about how he applied the product in terms of dwelling times etc
