On my black '09 I used the "touchy" car washes for about a year and a half. (No hoses allowed in our apartments. ) In June I did the clay bar for the first time ever in my life, then used Meguair's ScratchX 2.0 and SwirlX products that were recommended here on the forum. A lot of work, but they took out all the scratches and swirl marks! Then I waxed it. Next day at work a guy saw it and was so amazed at how good it looked he just knew it wasn't a simple wash job. He asked what I used and I showed him. Thing is, I didn't tell him that I had done anything - he came to me! That's how much of a difference it made!
