Spots are completely gone.
Once they are gone for good, you need to prevent them from forming. The key is to dry the car immediately after washing it. Don't allow the water to sit and pool on the paint at all. It's tough, but it works and it beats paying money for a hard water filter system for your garden hose. Since I've polished mine out, I just dry it quickly and don't let the air dry it. No more water spots here.
+1 I would just cut to the chase and polish the car. The spots were probably there before you even took delivery of it.
