black grime on front bumper

I have had my 2LT for about 3 weeks now and I have noticed that a black grime accumulates on the front bumper at the center ridge. Has anyone experienced this? It is removed by bug and tar remover and some elbow grease.

Also I have had some dulling of the paint in this area. Any suggestions would be great!

I have no idea what that could be..

The paint is probably dulling as a result of the Bug and Tar Remover and "elbow grease," being used in a repeated fashion.
