    i did a search on water spots becuase i have the same problem and scott wrote this:

    i had some on the driver side, like 1 day old, that came off pretty easily, but those on the passenger side is still visible :sad2: looks like i'll have to try the vinegar and water solution

    Make sure after you wash in the Vinegar and water solution, that you rewash the car in regular car shampoo, to neutralize the acidity of the vinegar.

    Also, if you're going to wash your car with vinegar, you should re-wax. Vinegar will definately strip any wax you have on the vehicle.

    question about the vinegar and water mix, how much vinegar and water should be used to wash it, 50/50 of each?

    also, i only have it on half of my car, mainly on the passenger side doors, the front fender and part of the hood, would i have to do the whole car then wash like normal/polish/wax

    Ive heard 3 to 1 on the vinegar for mixing. Ive never actually tried it so i cant say. Ive only ever done 50/50 on windsheilds for water spots before.

    Have you tried going over the spots with somthing like S100 SEPC, or some other paint cleaner or polish?
