I gave her a wash and it's still there, pretty obvious. Has anyone else encountered this? Any ideas to clean it up - clay bar?
I had exactly the same! Wondered where it came from. Very greasy and exactly in the middle. Didn't come off with the pressure washer. Ad the end I took it of with a wheel cleaning product. Maybe soap would have done the same?

My car had been standing in the sun for quite some time. I think it was some greasy product that became more liquid?
See post above in regards to Cosmoline - waxy grease substance.
