I did a search for water spots but nothing.
Did a wash yesterday looked perfect.
This morning lime scale runs under the mirror on a dark car looks terrible.
Reading on Google most are using white vinegar, is it safe?
How do you deal with them?

This is what I use and it's excellent.

Some APC products are able to remove the water spots too. Heard of white vinegar and I'm sure it won't hurt but I don't know how effective it is.

In a hard water area it’s worth investing in one of these.

Also, when short on resin, which is getting expensive now I rinse with rain water which has a very low PPM value (also TDS)
all the best

And you matched them to the colour of your car 😉

Resin did get crazy expensive the year before last. It went down to £48 for 25 liters when I bought some last year. The other option is to buy the pure water that the window cleaners use. There are dispenser points located around the country for filling up container.
