Brand new black 2012 Golf. Just got it last wednesday. The monkeys at the dealer did wash it because I was too focused on numbers to remind them not to.
I do everything the right way. High quality cloths, 2 bucket method, P21s shampoo, all that. Today I was testing out the "Shmitt" mitt, as well as giving the Golf its very first wash. Everything turned out horrible. I guess I've done hundreds of dollars of damage to the paint because I'm not going to take the swirls out. I'll just give up and pay a detailer.
For those wondering, looks like the Shmitt was a waste of money. I'll just keep buying good ol Meguiars MF mitts, if I wash it ever again. This is my first black car and I know they are harder but damn I just am not up to this.
Just venting. Didn't help that it was 150 degrees outside either.
