Plain 'ol rubbing compound should do the trick. Just don't overdo it.

Have faced the same problem. Rubbing compound will do the trick, have to be careful not to rub too much. Then wax the area/car.
Another thing I have tried and which worked is using a 1:2 solution of Pril liquid with water. Used a plastic foam pad and lightly rubbed it and the stain is gone.

After this you MUST wax the spot, you will probably be removing 1mm or so of top coat.
