    My question is why these detailers see the need to put a polisher on a new car like this in the first place? Also, why dealerships continue to allow this practice to continue,
    and hire these detailers in the first place?

    In my experience, it's sheer ignorance on the part of the dealerships and their management. They don't understand detailing, the skill or time it takes. They just want fast work...and that is all they are willing to pay for.

    Many dealers also just have an automatic car wash with spinning brushes to wash the cars, if not the kids with rags scenario, to add in swirls..

    Unfortunately for the owner of this tahoe, I think it beats your buddy's mustang as the all time worst DISO. I took this pic just a few weeks ago at the 2011 Petit Le Mans at road Atlanta. When I saw this car i just started laughing, This Swirl job is almost borderline done on purpose, unless the idiot did it night in the complete dark. Either the way, I got a kick out of it & I'm sure someone else will too

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Is it just me or do those trails/swirls on the rear panel kinda look like 'ghost flames' (gone BAD)?

    That 'thing' is just wrong.

    DISO is about 1/3 of my work and the dealership will not hire me. So I guess I just keep charging the higher rate.

    If they're contributing to 1/3 of your work, then I'd say they are hiring you. In a round about way...

    Re: DISO = The Dealership Installed Swirl Option

    I have a problem with my newly painted car. 3 weeks ago, my car got a respray as the paint had bubbles on the roof. They took 2 weeks to complete the job. When receiving the car, i noticed that the paint sink inwards and created many holes all over the car.

    So I send my car back to the workshop and they told me that they will fix it. 3 days later, I collected my car and the paint job seems good. However I always wanted to check the real condition of the paint once I reach home. There were lots of oil on the paint and I took quick detailer to wipe clean the surface. Soon I realize there were lots of swirls and got worried that it could be me inducing the swirls.

    But i got suspicious that they might be using glaze to hide the swirls. I took swirl X to remove the oil on the car paint and true enough, I not only see swirls all over the car but also very bad scratches. I was flabbergasted and deeply upset.

    I need some advice here. The workshop has agreed to give me a full refund as I told them that they are wasting my time.

    I suspect that the scratches might be caused by machine rotary buffer to reduce the initial holes. I am thinking of using my DA + UC to remove the scratches. However Im just scared to remove too much clear coat as they might have already remove some during buffing.
