i gave up to be honest.

the hard water spots on your paint should be easy to remove with a good wax and polish.

Did you ever try the CarPro Ceriglass Glass Polish?

I'm wondering if I should try and bring this back to the dealership to see if they can do anything about it or would I risk causing more damage if I did that. Hmm...

i have not tried that glass polish. i have tried a few different ones using a orbital buffer with a glass cutting pad. no luck.

Toyota's paint is pretty solid. you should be able to wax and polish with no issues.

I used white vinegar & water before, 50/50 mix to remove water spots from glass. Mix it up into one of those spray/mist containers. Apply to glass then wipe. It also works on body panels too but removes any wax so be sure to reapply.
