Wonder what they washed that with at the dealership...some brillo pads? lol. That paint looked worse than most 10 year old cars and it was a new vehicle... Wonderful work removing the swirls

dealerships are HORRIBLE for paint... they just want to get the cars sold, off the lot and try to rip off the next customer.
