    Meguiars Dual Action Cleaner Polish from their Body Shop Professional line. Starts off aggressive, but the abrasives are buffered so they break down as you work the product into the paint. You will probably have to order on line or find a local Meguiars pro distributer in your area.

    First thing though is to go back to the body shop and make them buff it correctly. They probably just used a wool pad and that was it. Make them use a swirl remover and a foam polishing pad and then a glaze with a foam finishing (or waffle) pad.

    Still, they're the one that waxed, there was no swirls before.

    If you really just want to do it yourself, there's a bunch of threads in this forum with the exact information you're looking for.

    I am pretty sure what happened is that they didn't tape off the front of the car properly, got overspray all over it and either don't know about overspray clay or they are just completely ignorant and used a buffer with a wool pad to remove the overspray.
