I second that. Claybar/professional detail.

Claybar made my '92 Caravan's paint feel like glass.

It removes the fine dirt and particles inbedded in the paint. i.e. waterspots

Check out PepBoys for the Mother's Claybar System.

Good Luck

I assume that the spots are hard water - first wash the car, next get something acidic like vinegar or a lemon (if using a vinegar dilute it with tap water). Hard water spots are typically minerals left behind from the water. The acid from the vinegar or lemon will re-desolve the minerals and clean/remove them from the car. No real "scrubbing" is needed with this process - just wipe it gently. You must rinse the area clean of the acid product and DON'T let it dry on your car. Once you are finished wash the car again. Pay special attention to all the places water might get trapped. I know first hand this works and if you do it right it won't hurt your paint - just keep everything wet. It's a little back woods, but it works.

I read here http://www.autopia-carcare.com/ that distilled viniger works for removing spots. I've never tried it yet but the sight is very good you may want to hit it up.
