Its 100% possible to keep the paint perfect with real world driving and several washes a month. Proper care and it will look just like mine. That photo was taken a month ago, and the last time the car was cut/polished was in march.

ANY car off the dealers lot will have swirls and rids. Ive seen Lamborghini's and Ferrari's have defects from the dealer lot.

Exactly why private detailers get good buisness from the wealthy.
