Try an "acid bath." Mix water and vinegar together, it should do the trick. Make sure to polish and wax the paint when you are done to protect the paint, the vinegar will strip the wax.

If they're not too bad you can use some quick detailer.

as was mentioned before, acid bath, paint cleaner, then claybar

Redo all your wax then.

NO! NO NO NO NO NO!

Rubbing compounds are FAAAAAAAAR too agressive for clearcoat paints.

Take 15 Mol Hydrochloric Acid...also called HCl. Pour it on and use gritty sand paper or steel wool to rub it in. Spray with water and dry.

Duragloss makes an AWESOME glass waterspot remover.

It's on this page

https://www.duragloss.com/new/products/gl-cleaners.htm

It's called "Nu-Glass". you might be able to find it in some retail stores if you live in the mid-atlantic states, VA, NC, SC, but you can order it from them. I love that stuff. Made my windshield look like new.

DO NOT USE ON PAINT!!! lol

Try Gel-gloss from Home Depot. It will take water spots off, light scratches from paint and leave your glass silky smooth.

I may be misunderstanding your water-spot problem. Is it water-spots from washing the car and letting it air dry? Or is it something that has become more permanent?

hard water spots are caused from water "staining" your car... example of a cause would be letting your car sit in the sprinklers
