    Ouch!

    Several years ago at the LA Auto Show one well known luxury brand had a large, roped off display of their premium brand, including a well known show car. They had a guy behind the ropes maintaining the cars, using a combination of a microfiber towel, some generic bottle of quick detailer, and a fancy feather duster. He was actually a bit entertaining to watch as he used that feather duster with quite a showman's flourish, making very elaborate movements and appearing more than a bit theatrical. When he stepped away from the show car I stepped closer, at just the right angle to see swirls that were every bit as bad as what you see in evomacky's picture above!

    you would not believe how many new cars at the autoshow had BAD swirl marks. I mean really BAD. I felt a little hurt inside that these cars needed a bit of TLC. I almost wished i had a DA there and just helped remove some of the swirls lol
