    I own a black 2017 Civc SI. If you're anything like me your area had atrociously hard water. Nothing you do can keep them from popping up even after a fresh wash unless you actually have shade to wash your car in (I do not at any point in the day). So the cheapest and most effective solution I have used is a spray bottle with a 50/50 white vinegar and distilled water solution. It eliminated 99% of the water spots. Now I will preface you should use and auto detail after just because vinegar is acidic. It has been a life saver in keeping my car looking like glass. I know a lot of ppl already know of this method but wanted to share the before and after results below.

    Yep. Thanks for the info. Mine got pelted with a sprinkler at a hotel over the weekend and has terrible waterspots now. Also black. I washed and spray waxed yesterday but it was overcast. Looked pretty damn good (so good I took a pic LOL) till the sun hit it today and there are waterspots everywhere. UGH. Next hand wash Im going to have to hit it with a vinegar spray over before I spray wax.

    No it didn’t work. It’s basically just a polish
