Zymöl takes some getting used to (Carbon) compared to the "low end" stuff. I've used them all before. When they say you don't need much, they mean it.
I've been out in the rain several times since washing, stripping, and waxing my Z. Yesterday my wife accused me of drying the car off the night before. I didn't — it just dried beuatifully on its own. Zymöl just gives it that glassy wet look that brings out the best in the paint — and NO swirls.
I have a non-metallic, black '00 2.8 which seems to be very susceptible to swirls in the paint. I use Meguiar's Swirl Remover, which helps, but some of the swirls are very stubborn and I can't always get them out before my patience runs out. I'm also tired of dealing with it every time I wash the car.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this? I'm tempted to take the car to a detailer, but don't know whom to trust (I'm in San Francisco, if anyone has suggestions) and am not confident the swirls won't just come back the next time I wash the car.
