i know of one thing you did wrong, if this was the first time you waxed the car, then you should have prepared the paint using a pre-wax cleaner


i'm not sure what caused the spots your talking about

ya somthing like that, you have to somehow remove the crap that gets stuck on the paint.
washing the car does not get everything.

justphong, it sounds like you might have hard water. Spots can also happen when you wash you car if you leave the soap/water for too long. You need to be sure to rinse and dry well in a short period. Of course waxing after the spots are there just protects them. I would suggest pain-cleaning clay or as white 330ci mentioned a pre-wax prep cleaner. Clay is really the best, it removes all the contaminants and ensures a smooth surface to polish and wax.
