    A high-quality polish will take that off easily. You can try SYSTEM ONE X3 Cutting Polish and if it doesn't work, I'll buy it back from you.

    We have the sample bottles on sale for $4.95.

    Hey, nothing here, stop doing that!!
    Just look to your right! ->
    Try Spot-X. You can get it at The Home depot & it's not expensive....this stuff works great! I had really bad water spots on my windows when I first got my truck & this stuff really worked well.....

    Here's a product that really works. A buddy just used it on a 68 Camaro window with really bad water spots. He didn't buy it at this link, it's just what came up in a Google search. He got it locally at a window/glass shop.

    I'm not entirely sure where I heard this before, but if you have some good rubbing compound, and rub it on the glass with a microfiber towel, you can get those waterspots out. I've done it a couple times on a couple cars and it works like magic.
