Got the Ebony twilight metallic about a month ago and the swirl marks are driving me crazy.. I used to be a detailer back in the 90s and none of the tricks I used to use seem to help, maybe it’s just my OCD. Granted the paint is different now and so are the cleaners. Used clay then Maguires ultra cut with a wool pad followed by ultimate polish with a foam pad and still isn’t touching it. Obviously I’m scared about going with anything harder just wondering if anyone here has had similar issues or luck.

Worked with the dealer to repaint the body and replace the window surround panel.

Eek that is rough for sure and yes far worse than mine. I worked as a body shop manger and trust me no body can beat a factory paint job. You will always get dust in the clear coat and very likely a few small runs. that’s even more annoying to me.

I’ve almost got mine perfect now here’s what I did
Step one: Maguires ultra cut #105 with a Wool pad.
Step two: Maguire's swirl Mark remover #9 with a Correcting foam pad
Step three Maguire’s ultimate polish with a foam polishing pad.
Step four torque detail Ceramic shine.
Scroll down to the reviews I took a photo and a video of what it looks like afterwards.
if you can get them to replace the trim great but a repaint should be a 100% last resort
I’ve worked as a detailer.body shop manager, a insurance field appraiser. I’ve always believed the goal should be to keep as much factory original as you can especially the paint’
