    There are several ways in which to achive what you want,

    You could buy a machine polisher, which would be the best and easiest way to remove swirls, but costly: expect to pay over £200 for machine polisher and kit

    Or by hand, to remove swirls by hand is nearly impossible

    But by hand there are ways to hide/cover/fill swirls

    Firstly as its a black car, if you are not going to machine polish it dont use a clay bar, it will make it worse

    Firstly wash your car, with the two bucket method, i use:
    Megs gold class - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin.../prod_423.html
    Good quality Lambswool wash mit - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin...t/prod_32.html

    Dry your car:
    Drying towel - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washin.../prod_362.html

    Then on to hideing those imperfections,

    Auto glyms super resing polish, is very good when applyed by hand, lots of fillers but does take a bit of time to apply, it can be applyed to the whole car or just sections/pannels that need it

    Poor boys black hole - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/glazes.../prod_494.html - Its a glaze that has fillers in, quite easy to apply and can easilly be applyed to the whole car

    Two coats of wax, i use:
    collinite 476s - http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wax/co.../prod_451.html
    its a very good wax, last long and looks amazing and one of the easiest waxes ive used

    If you're feeling flush you could get a professional paint correction by a local detailer then keep on top of the paintwork by following sam1832 tips above
