You can follow the OP's advice and do it yourself, or you can take it to a really good detailer and have them get the swirls out for you.

I've followed the latter route with many of my new cars simply because I haven't been pleased with how the dealer does it at delivery.

Enjoy the car.

The bad news is that taking out the swirls will also remove clearcoat. This is an old posting but if I took deliver of a car that was swirled I would seriously consider telling the dealer to order me a new vehicle and deliver it with no swirls or the deal is off. Alternatively, he could compensate me for the loss of clearcoat. I know this sounds picky and petty. However, I have a friend that did just that when taking delivery of a new M5. The dealer reordered the car for him.
