    If you used hardly any, i'd be surprised if it caused no swirl marks. Or your car was very clean before you used it.

    There just isn't enough lubrication when using a QD to clean a car.

    Exactly what I was thinking, surely it would just cause a stupid amount of scratches

    ive had no problems using it worked brilliantly for me and as i say no swirl marks or scratches just a clean shiney car. suppose its what youre used to, my local jaguar garage reccomended it as its what they use and theyve had no problems with it,

    I have used QD loads of times before. Have I ever even thought about trying to clean a dirty car with it? Nope, not a chance in hell.

    it WILL cause swirls. no matter how much you use. even using a lambswool mitt and the 2bm you will still get some swirling.

    waterless washes are the product of Satan!!!

    It probably fills the swirl marks temporarily, there is no way you can rub any product onto a dirty car and not have the existing dirt simply ground into the paintwork like liquid sandpaper. It would have to somehow disolve the dirt and grit into pure water or something, which it really won't.

    If this stuff really did work then we'd all be using it, trust me, I'd love to save time when washing my car!

    Let us know the Jaguar garage so we can all avoid it
