My bet: Chemical reaction between the two different surfaces/materials. The catalyst being H2O.

Has anyone repaired this, looks terrible when top down. Can it be resprayed. It feels like vinyl.

Retails for $650 new.

I had the same problem. Tried trim restorers and cleaners but always the white would come back. Last weekend I treated all the rubbers on the car with gummi pflege and figured i would five it a shot on those stains too. It took them away and they have yet to return. You can see the outline of where the roof touches the plastic still but thats due to wear and tear. The plastic trim itself is black as the night again. I used this product: LINK
