Be careful with the 3m wheel they can get hot if you get aggressive and burn the clear/paint. Trust me I know.

So this paint is on the paint? If you can't get it off with the clay bar or paint thinner (be careful, it will also take off the clear coat) it sounds like you will need to have it cut, buffed and polished.

Basically a little buffing compound on a random orbital sander/polisher, followed by some wax and polish is need.
