Hi, sorry to hear of your trouble! Can you post a photo of what the damage looks like? Also, do you know what they tried to remove it with? Just a cloth or did they use some type of cleaner or polish, too?

Forgot to mention - I have a white Si Coupe and pretty much as with all the Honda's I've had, the color on the bumpers do not match the body 100%, right from the factory regardless of color. My white '09 Si was that way, as was my orange '14 Si. Regardless, hopefully you won't need to get it repainted, that seems extreme as a solution.

unless it was painted on the car...it should be able to be removed, with the appropriate cleaner. i can't see why they would need to 'repaint' it with tire dressing spatter.

i'd try another professional detailer or reach out to autogeek or chemical guys. they are very knowledgable in their fields.
