    there is no way to asses this just from your description, it can be easily cut and buffed at a professional detail shop for 150 to 175 which should include a detail of the interior. Basically it needs to be polished professionally and then waxed, But get a professional opinion.

    Without seeing them its difficult to tell if its from a car wash, but not using a lot of water (I use a five gallon bucket, a soft brush, or a sheepskin type mitt dip it in water often to remove dirt particles, 3 or 4 gallons of water will allow the dirt to sink to the bottom, and use a car wash type soap to wash the car with. I rinse, and always take my car for a short drive after washing, this seems to dry it fine, and is cheaper and less hassle than buying special towels and having to clean and wash them later.

    Your car will need a good buff job to remove the swirl marks. It's hard to say how aggressive to be without seeing the car in person. If you're lucky all you will need is a swirl mark removing compound used with a foam buffing pad and then some hand glaze followed by a coat of wax. If they are severe enough you might have to start out with a more aggressive compound first.

    If you have no idea how to properly buff a car you will be better off taking it to a professional or you will make the swirls worse.

    DON"T try a pressure washer it could peel the paint or weather strips.

    Meguires makes swirl mark remover.You can do it by hand, but it's best to buy an ORBITAL BUFFER,not a rotary buffer. The orbital buffer($50.00 ) at Sears.will make that pony shine like new in about two hours then wax it. Read the info on the buffer

    It could be wax build up. Try a pressure washer to remove the wax, If you re wax it properly, the swirls may go away.
