is there anyway i can get rid of those by hand, or would i need a buffer?
types of wax?
Congrats on the new car. The detailer probably did a quick detail to get the car out. Odds are you will need to use a high speed rotary buffer, or orbital with compound to remove the scratches. Wax will only hide the scratches, not remove them. A decent sealant will remove the swirls. I'd ask in the car care forum, they have all the detailing answers over there.
