    Get some fall out remover and that will get rid of those iron particles.

    Any of the Iron-X type products will get rid. If the car had been parked near a railway it’s quite common too.

    A picture would be handy otherwise it’s hard to say exactly what it is on your car, and what’s your car exactly? Ive had small pinholes with rust before, which eventually starts spreading under the paint.

    Well at least it’s not a car that was in the era that wasn’t galvanised so it’s less likely that’s it’s rust. It could just paint contamination then. Did your detailed try anything to remove them. Clay bar will just remove above surface contaminants. If the defect is below the surface of the paint, or imbedded/etched into the paint, it will need polishing or maybe with some wet sanding too.

    He just told me it will need more than 1 wash with iron out applied so I'm guna have a look at weekend at a more expensive bottle of x-iron and see how I go on , maybe he could do with a machine polish after

    Pretty sure its just iron deposit. Lots of Autoglym Magma! I went through the pain of WHITE car ownership initially.

    Mercedes cars that have been fully galvanised can still rust, my CLK was repaired twice by MB for pinholes in the paint that were caused by poorly prepped paintwork.

    I doubt mine will be covered because it's a used 15 plate.
