Default Tips on how to get tree sap off bonnet strips?

Wow, looks like you guys aren't in to detailing much... but I'll give this a shot. Girlfriend took my Clubman up to Big Bear for a weekend trip and came back with what I think is tree sap all over the silver bonnet strips. I have tried all my usual tricks but have had zero luck getting it to come off. I am hoping I don't have to replace them but nothing has seemed to work yet. I imagine I am not the first guy to have this happen so who knows how to fix it?

A little dark, but to give you guys an idea. The line across the bottom where it is still clean is under the clear rock chip protector stuff.
