I wonder if the mystery was ever solved on this. I wish there were pictures for me to examine.

That sucks man I'm sorry to hear. I wonder if this is some type of failure of the clear coat or paint and every time you wash you remove the dust and expose the next lawyer? Kind of like exfoliating skin with a scrub. Logically it doesn't make sense.

Interested to hear the results of what one person suggested about tapping down a piece of paper. Could also use a car cover to wrap it for a weekend and see what's going on underneath.

Either way, seems totally bizaar.

Wash your car VERY well, dry it off COMPLETELY. Take a plastic sandwich bag, place it on your hand and gently rub the surface of the vehicle. If there is any contaminant on the paint you will feel it. If needed clay bar the entire vehicle and apply a good coat of wax, maybe try a different wax.

Tape a piece of white paper using painters blue trim tape to the hood right after washing it and getting the spots off. Tape all of the edges of the paper to try and get it completely sealed off.

If the spots come back on all of the car including the paper, it is more than likely environmental. If the spots come back including under the paper, there is some type of contaminate on the paint.

I would think that a nice hand wax job might prevent this stuff from sticking as much, whatever it is. Why not call around to car washes or detailers in your area to see if they have any experience with the issue?
