      Looks like someone Splattered brush with wet paint on my car. Now there are plenty of fine spots bonnet and roof. These are white spots and area clearly visible on red paint. When tried to remove few spots using nails, they left some finer ****le behind.

      When shown them to the workshop guys, they said that forceful attempt of removal may damage the water based paint.
      A good Compound would do the trick. have Experienced the same with my car.

      When I took the car at the workshop, the painter said that there is risk of the paint getting damaged with the thinner since its water based paint. Some of the paint drops were leaving ****le after removal and there was risk of the thinner entering below the paint and side effects of like cracks or crust may appear in the future. So stopped him further.

      I wonder if polish will help here.

      Compound from the likes of 3m, menzerna, Meguiars, poor boys etc.
      But you would require an aggressive compound and a polishing machine. If you do not have these I would recommend going to nearby detailer or 3m detailing shop.

      If you have a clay block, some medium aggressive clay or clay block, with soapy water can remove the paint spots, without damaging the paint underneath, i have Ultima Elastrofoam, i had removed some tough tar spots with it on my paint, so I am sure these paint spots too can be removed. There are also other brands like Nano skin clay block avbl in amazon, always choose medium to high aggressiveness to remove such spots.

      +1 to claying. However, you need to do it very gently, so be prepared to put in a lot more time.

      I honestly doubt the clear coat on your car is water based though.

      edit - Just checked online, it indeed is water based.
