Can you feel them with your fingers or is it still smooth?

I've seen kinda similar from crappy repaints where the base coat never fully dried before they clear coated but never on a factory paint job.

I had some spots that eventually went away..nothing bad as the OP. Some others I had to polish out as they were clear water spots that etched the paint. This is my first car with clear coat that seems precarious to me..just looking at it can scratch it and any water has the potential to spot it. Could be the tornado red just shows everything in the clear coat. I'm like fanatical now about using sealants and will probably move on to a stronger ceramic coating in the future. Love the red color but the clear coat paint just seems precarious and fragile to me.

It is smooth, I just received call from dealer. They tried to fix it using heat and it did not work. I do not know what the next step is
