hmm did you try to remove it with some quik detailer before using the clay bar??

soak it with some QD to see if that loosens it

looks like it may have eaten into your paint, you may be able to remove it by using an aggressive polish, machine polishing would be ideal

do you have pics

I had the same problem, managed to get it off by machine polishing it with Megs #83 and my Porter Cable 7424 and a 4" spot pad. Then dropped to #80 and it was invisible! Horrible stuff, I now keep a microfibre cloth and some Megs QD in the glovebox just in case.
