These aren't normal water spots, this is mineral deposit from hell.
I should have been more specific in my posting.
For normal water spots, I just wipe the car dry after washing with
a 100% cotten towel.
I talked to a local detail shop, they said Meguires #9.
I'll try it tonight and post the results to the list and cc you.

I believe you will find at least a range of possible answers to your
questions in the TIps and Techniques section of my web site
(www.cosmix.com/sterling). If you want to contact me after you have had
the chance to review the information, you can either call of email me.
The Liqui-Tech Pre Cleaner will normally handle waterspots, but you may
need to use a mild compound. You will see the comparable wet sand paper
grit number in the product descriptions for Pre Cleaning Paint.

I've got a similar problem, and my spots have been sitting for about three
weeks now (don't ask :-)). Anyway, I was talking to the owner of a body
shop in San Jose and he reccomended putting vinegar in the wash water.
Interesting, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. If that, or regular
washing, doesn't work I'll be trying 3Ms Hand Glaze (my current glaze
product). Beyond that, hmmm, maybe prof. detailing?
Sorry if that wasn't much help. Maybe some of the more learned members will
have a better answer.
Cheers (& good luck),
