Black paint water spots?

Biggest fear of any car owner with black paint is dirt, scratches, and the horrible.... Water spots. Any tips on how to keep water spots off I dry with and absorber out of direct sunlight for the most part but still get water spots any other way to get rid of them?

Get a water filter it will help a lot. You don't have to spend a lot of money on one either, I bought an RV water filter from WalMart, and it works perfect! You can also try getting a quick detailer from Meguiars.

If you still can't get rid of them, start with a clay bar, followed by a Light Cut polish, and a high quality wax.

If it is real severe you can try a medium cut polish.

I actually bought one at Walmart for $17.00 it's called an RV water filter, but it does the trick.

It links from hose to hose.

Is the filter a decent size?

It's not like a whole reverse osmosis system, but it does a decent job. You'll still have to dry the car and wash in the shade type of thing, but it reduced my spotting issues by 50%.

I'll post a picture as soon as the Falcons win!
