    Are you sure the swirls are in the clearcoat and not the base coat?

    I'd really have to see your car and your technique in person to know how to advise you further. You may end up having to get your car professionally detailed and then maintain it after that.

    how much would that usually cost? Man, it kind of sucks because the car is pretty new too.

    In California, probably between $150-200. In the Dallas area, $100-150...but the cost of living is a lot lower here and no state income tax.

    Yes, typically it would for that price. The detailer would tell you what he was going to be doing to your vehicle before he did it.
