    Wax and polish,it will remove the water spots and prevent it from happening next time you wash it.

    Assuming it's the black TA in your avatar... I had a black TA in the past and I had water spots on it. I used the Turtle Wax black liquid polish on it and that worked wonders, on the water spots, and also on the small scratches and swirl marks too...

    I was actually trying to remember the order of events, because I did use a clay bar on mine and it kicked ass. My car was parked outside and had tons of sap spot and ground in grit and whatnot, and the clay bar removed all that and made the car feel as smooth as the day I bought it. Awesome stuff.

    But I can't remember if I had water spots at that time. I just remember I used the black polish for some water spots at another time.

    Surely someone else has used a clay bar on water spots and will chime in. My thinking is that it would help though.

    i wonder if there is a mixture if using vinegar like 50/50 with water? I cant stand seeing my car look like that! Gonna need a water softer for the house for sure.

    There is. You get a spray bottle. Fill it half with water and the other half with vinegar

    Use scrunched up cheesecloth to polish out the water spots.

    vinegar does work some what. if you can get ahold of some "masters touch" "wheel brite" that works AWESOME. I used to detail and it was a gooooood money maker for me. mix 1 part cleaner 2 parts water. spray on clean car panel, wait 10-15 sec, take soapy wash mit and re-wash that area, rinse and all should be good. I have NEVER had to reapply this stuff.

    Polish them out. Wax won't prevent them no matter what kind you use. God help you. Sounds as though you have some nasty water.

    And a claybar will only take the tops off.....

    Jeff -- I'll start by saying I don't have a clue how to get the spots off your car. That being said, congrats on the successful move! Hope all goes well in the new locale for you and your family. Thanks again for the rims too! That was four less things that you had to haul out there.

    thanks for saving my back from lifting anymore things. glad the rims worked for you. I wish somebody new how to get these out. they were pretty much backed on there from 4 days of sitting in the sun. the hood is the worst part.

    I had some nasty water spots on my Solstice and I used Meguiars Ultimate compound with my orbital buffer and they were taken care of right away.
    It can be applied and removed by hand, but you'll have a sore arm.
