Acid Rain Etching - Will DA Remove?

I have a black 530i - was in Kitchener this past Sunday when we had a sudden hail storm. Didn't notice till I washed the car and yesterday in the direct light that I had millions of tiny little "craters".
Thought it was from the hail, called ins. co, took car to their preferred shop and they said it is actually etching from acid rain?? I have a $500 deductible and they want me to drop off the car and they'll wetsand and buff the car, if craters are too deep, they may have to repaint!!
I have a porter cable 7424...I think I should try just just buff it out before anything! No?
Anyone had issues like this before? Perhaps I need a 2nd shops opinion?
