The sealant used by BMW still maintained a glossy finish, but under afternoon light you could see the paint was riddled with fine swirls. Also running your palm across the paint you could feel the built up contaminants in the paint:

Love the TLC that your giving the car!! I under the frustration of after long hours cleans the beast yet you are still not satisfied with the work

Maybe it's just OCD !! guess we have something in common :P do you use the machine or all done by hand?
