    13 wrx getting sunspots?

    Hey guys I went out to wash my car today and I noticed these spots on my hood. I counted about 7-10 spots not all of them were as perfect of a circle as this one.

    Any idea what's going on? Are they from sitting in the sun?

    I have those on my doors, and I suspect brake dust being the culprit!

    I would do a good clay bar and wax then see if it removes it. Are the spots in the area of a clear bra if you have one installed? If so could be rock chips in the clear bra the have a bunch of dirt stuck to it. Keep us posted.

    Nope no clear bra, theyre closer to the windshield. I only use mothers wash/wax soap then Mcguires spray on wax maybe that's the problem from not properly waxing it? I wash and spray on wax it ever 2/3 weeks.

    I have the the same issue. I've used a clay bar but it did nothing. Then sometime later, they just disappeared but would return in other areas. They almost look like little round rust spots, but of course, it's not rust.
    Let me know what the dealer says.

    That's rail dust. When cars get transported on railroads and the train hits its brakes it kicks up little bits of metal that basically sit on your paint. Eventually they rust and that's what causes the discoloration. Little bit of elbow grease and some clay bar then they'll go away.

    Just got back from the dealer. The service manager said the spots were most likely cause by acidic rain and it is perfectly "normal".
    I told him that I've never had that happen to any of my previous older cars and he didn't say anything.
    He said that he'll take pictures and email them to soa but ill most likely get denied. So I guess ill find out in a few days
