If that wont do it, Zaino makes a pretty good glass polish, used it on my old Corvette and got 90% of the spots off.

I've been told by my indy that very fine steel wool get's rid of these marks, without scratches.
Don't use a lot of force on it, take your time and only use this on glass, not on paint.
This also helped the function of the automatic wiper sensor. (If it's available on a R129)
I believe those marks are calcium, so U can also try products which U clean the bathtub with.

spots on windshield
Although hard to find as it hasn't been manufactured for ~5 years, I've been able to buy Bon-Ami ( CAKE ) on e-Bay. As I'm probably biased because I used this on my 1st cars (no doubt I "borrowed" my Dad's) I find that there is nothing better. Just a thought.........

The apple method does work...just takes too long. I used very fine steel wool and a little dish soap....with light pressure, spots came right off with no scratching.

for recent/new water spots the above methods do work if your gentle and very patient.. sometime the acid in the water actually etches the glass and it looks like spots but is a small crevice in the glass.. that's why rain x works temporarily by filling the hole.. if it is bad enough to annoy you or pitted from highway driving replacing the windshield is the best bet..
