3M Finesse It with a grey foam pad on low speed (1500rpm) If you are new with a buffer be sure to mask off all the edges so you don't burn them. Follow up with 3M hand glaze. The hand glaze will make it look wet and just painted but will disappear next time the car gets wet.I personally don't use a wax because it will just build up and be a haven for swirl marks again. Your best bet is to use a good polish every few weeks. I hear the Zaino Bros stuff is great but personally haven't used it.

BIG TIP: Use a leaf blower to dry the car and a 100% cotton towel that is undyed to get any other spots the blower doesn't get. Also use a seperate bucket for the wheels, brake dust is the worst enemy of any car's finish!
