Angry Need help with bad polishing dealer job

I bought a silver 03 WRX and later noticed the dealer had polished it for some reason and left swirl marks. They told me to toake it back to have it buffed but I amd worried about bad results. Anyone knowledgable can suggest what I should ask the dealer before they buff? The swirl marks are a small area at the rear fender and spoiler that look dull. Will this come out easy or should I ask them to have the car done at a pro detailing biz? They have a Subaru body shop right there in their complex so I assume the should do it right (The car is from another dealer so maybe the other dealer were the ones who scratched the paint). Anyone with some advice? TIA

Yeah I had a bad swirl mark also on my hood when I received mine from the dealer. Just detail it yourself. Use Zaino

Do it yoruself... The dealer will just make it worse...

Or take it to a REPUTABLE detailer and have it done for about 100.

Heres my obligatory: Or go to www.autopia.org and you will learn everything and more on how to make your car look better than 99% of the cars ont he road.

Definitely check out Autopia...

Do it yourself. You can always try something else if what you do doesn't work...don't spend the money on random detailers and dealers, make it shine yourself...it's much more refreshing.


P.S. Check out Meguiar's Three Step...I used it on my car and now everyone wants me to do their cars too!!
