    i'm not sure what this residue is, but i cant get this stuff off "ferrari" on my engine no matter how hard i try. any ideas what this is, and how to return it to a clean state. for the record the car is garaged and kept out of the sun.

    It looks like corrosion. That would also explain why you can't just clean it off and why it isn't on the paint.

    Some Fine Wet & Dry should do it...

    Looks like authentic patina to me (or maybe Al2O3)...
