Now, when I sold my Mazda 3 - had it for 2 years - no protection, never waxed. It still looks like new after I wash it. On closer inspection, there ain't too much swirls, but it's there.
Clear coat does amazing things.
Yea, especially when u re-apply reviver every 6 month, the paint works seems more reflective and minor swirl marks are covered up.
I guess if u wash ur car quite regularly, u will end up with swirl marks. That is way im thinking about buff the swirl marks out but not sure what effect it will have on paint protection.
