Unhappy Just Washed / Polish. Need help...

Ok, I washed my car as like normal, and then polished my car for the first time (first experience too). This is a e36.

The product is used was:
Meguires Step #1 from Pepboys
and then followed up by Finish 2001 Polish.

The swirls are still there... what did i do wrong? here are the pictures.



The lighting is bad in the after picture since it was getting dark, but the swirls are still there. I also picked up the 3M Perfect-It Rubbing Compound and tried it on part of the fender but the swirls are still there (i did not use a PC though, but a other random orbiter). I'm thinking about returning the products and going with the SSR 2.5 and SSR 1.0 and the Klasse AIO & SG way. Any tips, suggestions, places (discounts?) will all help. Thanks guys. This is a E36 M3 by the way.
