You know your cars lol it is indeed an A45, the car came with the guards but I’m 99% sure the white paint was not there when I purchased the car it must of happened just a few weeks after ownership when I noticed it.

That would literally do my swede in. You must be screwing. It looks like road paint. Don't get impatient or a full correction will be in waiting.
I would try and get a sample from a inner wheel arch and get it tested.

Hi guys, just an update it’s still on the car and doing my nut in, I don’t notice it when the car is dirty but after a good clean and it’s gleaming it does my nut in seeing white specks all down the sides.. I tried auto glym tar remover , white spirit on a microfiber and it’s not budged. I don’t know what to do next or whether to leave it.

How are you with a machine polisher you could use a medium grade polish and pad and see if that removes it if it does a bit then step up to a cutting compound and MF cutting pad followed by a finishing pad and polish

I have the same car and I have a bit of road rash but that was before I fitted the same guards to

Not stepped into the machine polisher territory yet so I may have to take it to a reputable detailer see if they can remove it. Cheers

Have you tried claying it as someone suggested? I’ve seen many references to this removing paint-overspray and it might work here.

Where you located? Best to call in on a pro detailer let them tell you exactly how to remove / they will do it for you.
That’s what pros are for, plus will no doubt save you loads of money in the long run. But sort it straight away.

Could try a meguiars clay bar kit from Halfords if you want something you can get easily. I use bilt hamber clay and it's pretty good. Claying isn't overly challenging and Quick YouTube search will show you how to do it. Just make sure you use plenty of lubricant.

Otherwise I'd get it to a detailer! That would drive me mad!
