Recommendation on how to remove swirl marks

Hi. My x5 is a 2019 and at some point was cleaned with a very gritty cloth. Lots of swirl marks. Can anyone recommend a detailer in west London that can polish this out?

Any detailer should be able to do a few passes of polishing to remove the swirls.

They call it "paint correction" these days, but its the same thing. Polish compound and buffer.

Is that what some places are calling machine polish?

Swirl marks can be removed by a DA polisher. If you’re considering doing the work yourself, I use Adams Swirl Killer Pro polisher with Meguiars microfiber discs and Meguiars correction compound on my X5 to remove scratches, halo’s, and swirls. Afterwards, the paint looks absolutely beautiful! Good luck.

Yep, machine polish=paint correction.

Careful with doing it yourself. You can easily polish right through the clear coat if you are inexperienced.
