The whole car needs wet sanded? Was there orange peel or fish-eyes?

So those are HID's in a regular housing? I won't bust your chops, but the whitest bulb I have ever used is a Philips Crystal Vision Ultra, amazing light output.

By wet sanding before the final wax the paint shines like no other. Zero swirls amd zero scratches

I thought the same thing with the skirts!!

And yes it appears to be a 6000k kit in black SVT housing headlights.

You can get 6000k hologens and get the same look. I have 8000k in mine. No HIDs.
