egg eats clearcoat and typically when it impacts the paint theres some damage.

Try a scratch remover like scratchx, they usually remove the damaged clearcoat to expose the undamaged underneath, just don't remove too much

talk to your insurance, usually if your fully covered they have a $100-$150 theft and vandalism co-pay but the rest is covered. Have a paint shop repaint or fix.

for the scratches use turtle wax rubbing compound that should work pretty good. as far as the stains are concerned im not too sure.
