my swirl marks definitely didn't come from the dealership. I took delivery in August and washed it about every week and waxed it every 2-4 weeks depending on how the beading was. I never saw swirl marks before winter. I do know that dealerships typically are horrible when it comes to prepping new cars. I usually tell them not to was mine, I get a lot of enjoyment and relaxation from dealingmy car.
