Or do more passes (i.e. work polish until it flashes). I had a black Mazda over the summer that took 8 passes on each section to get the water spots removed.

 

Dan's suggestion of moving up to the new green pad and SSR polish will save time, but multiple polishing passes will allow you work with the products you have on hand.

 

I would suggest working a small (2' x 2') until it is corrected to your satisfaction. Then move to the white pads and FMP to clean up the SHR.

Yep, these guys pretty much hit it... for more severe water stains you'll need more passes or a more aggressive approach.

Some water stains are actually etched into the clear coat, meaning that ring you see is a physical void in the paint. In order to remove them you need to take all the clear surrounding it down to the same level. I've even encountered some so bad as to require wet sanding to remove them.
