    Get it royal shield coated. Tension free for at least 2 years, no polish required. I have this on my car.

    There is always issue of cloth circle scratches on dark colors like black,grey and wine etc... Better use polish with scratch remover and always use good shampo with soft cotton cloth for washing... Best of luck

    as Jz suggested, go to this thread and you will have a good time saving your car skin and keeping it bling bling for a loong time

    for very light scratches, if they are swirls then you not need to use anything for now
    just use a good wax, and a good cleaning cloth and stop going to the car washers as they will ruin the paint. if you can clean your car yourself, then its perfect. you need only some basic good products and then you are good to go and it will be fun to keeping your car looking great all the time

    The light scratches you mentioned are swirls which arise due to dry wiping/dusting the car with a simple cloth/'taki'. Avoid doing so.
    As for the correction, get Turtle's ICE Synthetic Paste Polish. Since your car is new, you do not need to get the swirls treated/removed as it would require cutting your clear coat.
    Weekly applications of ICE will ensure a reduction in swirls gradually up to a certain point because it contains very minute polishing oils. After 2-3Months of weekly applications of ICE, switch to a proper wax like Mother's California Gold Carnuaba Wax, Meguiar's Gold Class or 3M's Perfect-it Wax. A wax will ensure shine, depth and a little protection from swirls due to dust.
    And do get a few MF towels for washing and waxing the car. Avoid dry wipes to wipe off dust. Use a damp MF to pat/wipe light dust off the surface.
    Red Wine is great colour to detail. The shine and depth is amazing if a proper wax is done.
    About Royal Shield, it's just a fancy name for a sealant. They use 'no wax required' as a marketing gimmick to lure in Pakistani customers who love to settle for least hassle.
    Yes you can get your car RSed, but you'd still need to wax to maintain depth and shine.

    @devilz u r wrong that after RS, waxing is still required. I got RS on my second car, it lasts for 2 years without polish. One was black in color and present one is gun metallic.

    it all depends on the level of shine and depth u r willing to settle for. RS is just a mediocre sealant . Having 2 cars RSed doesn't make you an expert you know. How do you know that RS lasted for 2 years on your previous car? a wild guess i presume.
    RS gives you a 3 year warranty, but how will you know that RS coat is gone before those 3 years and you need to claim your warranty? You'll never know unless you have some detailing experience. And any customer getting his car RSed doesn't have any experience at all because he wants to settle for less hassle.
    Like i said before, RS is just a fancy name of a mediocre sealant. Proper sealants costs a lot more than this. RS suppresses the shine and depth on metallic colour hence you need a proper wax to get the required shine.

    Royal Shield is pointless. When they so called 'ROYAL SHIELD' your car, a good layer of paint is removed which makes your car's surface more delicate over the long run.

    I treat my car with Meguiar's and trust me it looks and feels better than a royal shielded car even though I'm not really good at detailing but still. Treating your car with the correct polishes, waxes, sealants is more reliable and lasts longer than just 'royal shielding' your car.

    Don't worry, it's not a big deal, try taking pictures from different angles in which the scratches are visible. Seems like these are just swirls, happens when you use a dry cloth to wipe off dirt and well dirt is abrasive so it leaves behind minor scratches. You can get rid of these easily.

    U r right i am not an expert of detailing. But i am saying what i have experienced, like before RS the body was rough and used to catch dust quickly, even within 2 / 3 hours of service. Removing dust was a quiet difficult job even with a wet cloth, showing a torch light on body used to show clear scratches in circles arising out of rubbing of dust particles.

    These problems gone after RS and i started facing these again after 2 years.

    There's a wide range of Meguiar's products available. It all depends on the surrounding conditions and your detailing habits. Some people polish and wax their car every year, some do it monthly.

    My car isn't much driven so I really don't need to put in much effort, but yeah I wash it every week and wax it every 6 washes, but waxing isn't required to be done this often normally, this is only because I like spending time on the car.

    You can use Gold Class and NXT 2.0 and notice how the results will be SO much better than your Royal Shield, you'll notice more depth and gloss in your paint and yes it will last long.

    Giving your car regular attention is better than getting a 2-year RS and risking your car's quality paint job.

    These are swirl marks which can easily be removed without Royal Shield.
