if he couldn't get the scratches in the bumper out then he wasn't a very good detailer.

You got what I expected to see from a $200 buff job.
I would get on autopia.org and see what they have to say. They can also put you in touch with a pro detailer in your area.

Not to piss on your parade or anything, but they likely used a product with a significant amount of fillers in it, like a heavy duty glaze. The first (or second) time you wash it the fillers will likely be removed revealing unfixed marring...
