Zaino ! Stuff works great and is meant to take out swirls. Several step process, so get ready for a day of polishing, but great way of getting familiar with your car !

I highly recommend removing the swirls instead of just covering them up to reappear later. Tropi-Care Swirl Cutter was designed just for that purpose, to remove the swirls and make your paint look like its 10 feet deep. Check www.tropi-care.com for more information.

For swirl removal, Zaino is not the best. In fact, it barely repairs anything. It's meant to go on an already perfect finish.

Try Menzerna polishes with a porter cable. Done properly the swirls will actually be removed... not just covered and filled.

no one has stated what most likely got you the swirls in the first place which is most likely from using the wrong towels. Choosing the right towels for cleaning your car is very important. When washing your car no need to do hard rubbing either. The swirls can be buffed out and removed other ways.

use terry cloth towels, microfiber towels, and always make sure the towels are clean.

Swirl X by Meguiars then your favorite wax.

You cannot beat the price and final outcome of meguiars.

Yes Zanio is great, but i am not spending an arm and a leg for products, when i could get Meguiars for 2x less and get just as good results. ( maybe a tad less, but hardly noticeable if you know how to use there products.)
