    There's been the same thing on some people's wheels. Happened to my stocks. Spray it on but don't spray off and the brake dust settles in streaks under the clearcoat. Probably the same thing but water stains for not wiping it off properly

    First, sorry if this whole thread is in the wrong section... I just noticed there is a 'Detailing' forum right below this one.

    I went back to the car dealer and they took a look and agreed something was wrong with the glass. Of course, they offered no possible causes for this, but I have a hunch their service department sprayed the wrong thing on my car while prepping it. Maybe using wheel cleaner on my glass by mistake... I don't know.

    I let them attempt to fix a portion of one window, and the only way they could make the glass clear was by using a light rubbing compound. It seems to have taken away 99.5% of the problem and I'm sure with some more work it could be 100% right. However, I don't trust them to do a perfect job so I will likely go to a professional detailer to work on all of the windows.

    This is a brand new car and something wrong happened either in shipping or dealer prep, so I called Subaru of America to inform them of what was going on. The woman on the phone said she was going to follow up with the dealership to get some answers and get back to me.

    Thanks for all of your suggestions, and be sure to thoroughly inspect your cars before you drive off the lot! I learned so valuable lessons here.

    One of the AMMONYC YouTube videos shows how he uses a razor to clean glass.

    Any glass Polish should do the trick. I use one from Griot's that polishes all grime and pits off the windshield. You will need a DA or rotary polisher for best results.
    P.S. I also have a 15' WRX and have no pain or water spot problems even though my sprinklers hit my car with hard water. The spots come right off with soap and water.
