Swirl marks on Soul Red noticed the next day after delivery

Hello folks,
I just took delivery of a C-50 Turbo Premium in Soul Red on Sunday. I actually picked it up at night so I didn't notice any obvious blemishes. However, today I saw the car for the first time in the sun and noticed tons of swirl marks on the hood (primarily). It's most noticeable there due to the flat surface. You can see some others on the fenders, but they aren't as obvious. My first thought was when the car was detailed they didn't use the appropriate drying cloths, but as I didn't watch them do it I can't be sure. I told the dealership about it, and they pretty much said that it's going to be more noticeable in the red for starters and since the car was so new they suggested I wait a couple months and then they would wax it. I would hope they'd do more than wax it and actually polish it as well. Anyway, do you think it warrants waiting 2 months? Their main dealership is actually undergoing renovations so their body shop is currently not in full operation. My guess is that's actually why they want me to wait. What do you think I should do?

If you have time and a willingness to learn, correct the swirls yourself. A DA polisher with a one-step light compound/polish will make your car look better than any dealer's “detail” attempt. In the long run, if you want to minimize swirls and keep your car looking new, never use an automatic car wash, and learn how to properly hand wash and detail your car.
