Acid Rain...... Help

Just pisked up my IBM 2SS M6. The dealer called and said your car just came in. I said I want to be the first one to clean it and they said OK. Get it all done and pull it in my shop and am wiping it off and it has water spots all over the whole top half that will not come off. It looks alot like acid rain. Nothing on the sides just the top half. I have tryed everything in my detailing arcinal just short of a buffer and nothing will touch it. I would like to try anything you guys have tried without having to buff the car for now. I am trying to not get any swirls on it. Any help would be appreciated.

That can also be from hard water..........Do you have well or city water??????? Minerals are more likely the culprite, filter your water with this:

Another member had Bird Crap etched into his paint, I used this on his car, and now it is gone:

If you have a buffer, orbital even, would be a lot easier.

i dont know what you have. but i washed my car the first time and really did not like how it looked. so i went for the zaino and received it today. did the whole process and I could not ask for any better. I spent 200 bucks, alot of money. However, that'll last a long time.
there are some directions on this site. however I alterted them, by basically just adding a few things in between. turned out pretty damn good.

What is in your 'arsinal'

I have a black car and I've had the spots you describe and got it off with the two stage Turtle Wax Black. The first stage took the spots off.

Vinegar will work to dissolve the mineral deposits. Just wash with soap and water immediately, and rinse.

I picked this thing up at the dealership like this so I am assuming this is Canadian acid rain.
