How to remove water spots from Toyota black paint?

Hi all

I have a black Toyota that has water spotting on the bonnet and would like to remove them.

I tried using CarPro Spotless but it did nothing.

Are there any other products I could try or has the water spotting etched in too far that it needs to be cut and polished?

Any compound/polish and pad combo recommendations for black Toyota soft paint would be great!

Koch FSE might be worth a try , not a bad QD either but I've had decent results with white vinegar as well , depends on how bad it is of course

Thanks for your reply!

Would the white vinegar strip any waxes, sealants or coatings?

Yes most likely it would

I use Koch Chemie FSE for removing water spots and find it does the job very well.

I find it perfect for when you come to your car the next day after washing and notice some water spots, quick spray with FSE and wipe and they're gone.

If you want to stop water spotting all together then look at water filter systems that remove the impurities from the water. That's what I'll be doing at some stage.
