Someone egged my car last night

Mad as hell

Must have happened last night and I didn't come out to my car until 4'ish today and it has been 88F where I am.

Eggs were cooked onto the paint. Spent 2 hours cleaning that side and there are some patches where the paint is a different color now.
If I ever caught whoever did it.....Swear to god it would not be pretty and there would be some serious retribution. No other cars were hit -- just mine.

Anybody else ever have this happen to them?
Any suggestions as to the paint?
Where can I find touchup paint for my Pearl Gray Metallic TE? Should I just go to the local benz dealership?

That sucks!
Eggs contain alkaloids which can damage paint! Saturate a towel in a solution of 50% white vinager and 50% water and place it over the stain on your paint. Wait and pray... If it hasn't been too long you should be able to save your paint.
Good Luck!

Happens to me usually on Halloween. Also silly string.

It's annoying. The eggs tend to crack the paint where they land. Very ugly.

Ha a rock thrown at the window on my old car, left a pretty big crack. I have a strong suspicion of who did it, but no proof and can't figure out where he lives...
