    Well the paint is black, so every little swirl shows up on it... I also thought the paint was going to be harder... it actually seems to be kind of the opposite.

    Yes cadi paint is very soft have to be careful using a rotary on it burn right through it. Thats also the reason they get so many swirls since the paint is so soft because other black cars are not usually as bad as the cadi's are...

    I don't use a rotary at all... my Flex does all of the jobs I need it to honestly, without leaving swirls or holograms. I used a rotary for a little while, but I just feel better using a powerful DA that doesn't have the same risk of paint damage.
