This summer I started noticing some white discoloring in the paint on the roof of my 2008 Civic SI. I have not been keeping up with waxing as I did when it was new. Doh! It sits in the sun most of the time which I'm sure doesn't help.

Then the other day I saw another Civic with the same issue. Is there anything that can be done? Or is it a lost cause since it's under the clearcoat? See attached pics.

Its a common issue, Honda was addressing it awhile back but not anymore. Depending on how much your car is worth, it may be worth it to get repainted or try wrapping it or something. I don't care about my car much (not worth $ much) so I'll probably rattle can my roof and DIY it.

Have you tried visiting a detail shop? You'd be amazed on what they can do. Yes, the overall best way to repair that is to repaint it, but that cost big money. Can't hurt to consult a detailer.
