    Oily Spots, discoloration on plastic trim

    No idea what got me, but 6 weeks ago I noticed these oily spots around my window, along with white spots on the trim.

    Washed it 4 times by now and no changes. I'm looking for suggestions on what product to try on it. I have a dual action polisher.

    Photos attached. You can see the white spots on the trim, I will try some trim detailer and a toothbrush on that first, just not sure about the paint.

    What's your year, make and model of car Nitro? I've had good luck starting with a cleaner wax (D166) on spots like that, especially if they have appeared all of a sudden. Probably something in the water.

    It's a 2011 Chevy Camaro. I am worried that if I hit it with the wrong product, it would 'spread'. But I get since washing is doing nothing, that's probably not a factor.
