Your car will definitely have some swirls or marks as the valeters at main dealers are only allowed a certain time to prepare a car. You should at least have 1st stage machine polish. Its pointless spending £450 to lock in the swirls. You have spent a lot buying the car so in the grand scheme of things another couple of hundred is a drop in the ocean getting it looking the best it could be. The cheapest is not the best at detailing. Go & see a couple of detailers checking out their work before deciding.
Have a look at detailing world forum (https://detailingworld.co.uk/forum/index.php) for lots of advice

Like a few others I went for Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra, including the glass, wheels, and interior (all treated with the appropriate Gtechniq products). I'd highly recommend the product and the results were fantastic. My local detailer is UAS in Llanelli, they were great...

I'm getting 3/4 Xpel Ultra PPF wrap fitted, then I'm Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light the uncovered parts, followed by a coat of Gtechniq Halo on the PPF and Exo on the Crystal Serum Light.

Sounds complicated but this is because I've heard if you put a ceramic coat or sealant coat on top of Xpel Ultra PPF it blocks the self repair function.

Anyone got advice on how to protect the Panoramic Sunroof? i.e. do you polish it? ceramic coat it or just pay for the PPF wrap?
