mrimark is an unknown quantity at this point
I've heard vinegar and water can help take out water rings on finish...
but what ratio of vinegar to water should I use? Is it OK to do entire car, or
should I just limit it to where water rings are (mostly trunk and hood).And should I
apply wax afterwards?
Thanks for any help!

Yeah, no don't do that.

A good car wash, followed by a prewax cleaner [or claybar], followed by a few coats of wax would be a MUCH smarter idea

Water marks? Assuming they are stuck in the paint should come out with a light compound or clay bar.

To stop it from happening, just wash your car a little more often, and use a shammy to dry it (if your really lazy then take it for a spin on the highway to dry it)
