Garden burning bin damaged paint

Morning all, bit of a strange one for you. Like an absolute idiot a couple of days ago I had my burning bin going getting rid of loads of cardboard, it was approx 4ft from my car (65 plate BMW 3 series)

I noticed yesterday that the car is now covered in little white marks very much alike stone chips, I tried blasting with a jetwash to no avail, have I royally messed up my paint? Could the ash/embers of burnt through the laquer ?

How would you approach this in regard to paint correction, machine polish?

I would try first to soak it, and wash it.
If no result, try to clay and polish it, it will come off.
Probably ash with a little moisture stick to the paint.

Thanks guys, I've noticed that some of them seem to come off with my fingernail so I'll try a bit of polish tomorrow and see what happens

So a decent fire going 4 feet from your car?

Let me suggest an emoji for you

Why were you burning cardboard, easier to recycle it. 4ft away from the car as well? Lucky the paints still there!

I'd agree with trying this - give it a really good pre-wash / snow foam and let it soak and hopefully with a wash etc they'll go...

Fingers crossed for you

I really wish you luck with the suggestions above, however I suspect this may be embers that have burnt into the clearcoat.

I saw a similar thing on a neighbours car many years ago and they ended up having a front end respray (lacquer only). Car was under a carport down the side of the house and they merrily burnt some stuff about 8 or 9 feet away in the back garden.
