A large proportion of all paintwork scratches are caused by automated car washes. Minute particles of hard materials, such as road dust and sand, become lodged in the rotating brushes and etch scratches into the paint surface. These “hair-line” scratches are particularly noticeable in darker paint shades.

If you think they are just in the wax (doubtful) use some isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to remove the wax and inspect the surface, if the scratches are still there (very likely) the clear coat is scratched and will need to be polished with an a abrasive
