    I can't recall the exact thread it was stated in, but it was one of the recent ones where someone was lamenting the crappy paint. Apparently since red and white are solid colors and not metallic or pearl they are single stage which saves Subaru time and money. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to know this is the case, though I would love to know the white has a clear coat (since I have a white WRX).


    In regard to the original topic, a wash, clay bar, followed by a quick detailer spray and wipe down should take care of the spots, and make it less likely for future spots to "set in", as long as a quick detailer is used weekly. That's what I do, and it has pretty much relieved me of lengthy and aggravating car washes.

    There is something different about the red I remeber Downshift saying but I don't remeber what. I don't think its single stage though.

    I only ask because its bad to leave it sitting on there if it is some kind of contaminent and could stuck on there worse.

    looks like polen with water etching. I had something similar when I was in high school and the janoitors decided to hose the pool deck off onto my car. I'll be suprised if claybar and then a polish doesn't get rid of it.

    im not sure if a claybar will do the trick in this case. Can you feel the buildup if you slowly and gently rub the back of your hand over it? try it anyway, if it doesnt work, a polish should def take care of it. good luck.
