Must be a real treat with these great Audi lights ;-)

I've never used it--heard too many stories like this. If it's petroleum 
based, I'd try (in order) chlorine bleach, (KEEP IT OFF THE PAINT!!) 
acetone (fingernail-polish remover), gasoline (as a solvent, not an 
accelerant! ;-).

BTW, if you want to drive on a frozen lake, wipe your tire treads off with 
bleach before you start. Cleans off the oil from the highway asphalt or 
something, cuz the tires stick like Velcro (tm). Lotsa fun if you just do 
the fronts! :-) :-) "Honey, please stop, I'm getting dizzy"
