    firstly never use a carwash, as you have now found out
    if you do not have a machine polisher da/rotary. i would use ag srp or a scratch remover like megs scratch x.
    or a dedicated hand polish kit like this.

    black car and automatic car wash :( or any car for that matter

    If you dont fancy forking out for a machine, you could try poor boys black hole to hide the swirl marks

    But to completly get rid of them your going to need a machine polisher

    PB black hole - Its a glaze that contains fillers, specifically for darks cars

    So it will fill all of you swirls and marks the caer wash has put on and hopefully hide them all. then you wax over the top of it

    Yea buffers are useless, mite be ok for apply the PB and wax

    well pb black hole it what alot of people, including my self use, inbetween machine polishing when you have a few swirls and marks that you dont want to see, but cant be bothered of dont have the time to machine polish the car properly,

    Its only like £12 so maybe worth a shot, it will certainly hide alot of the marks, its very good
