Nice work, car looks great!

I second the question on what did you use. Yellow pad, random orbital polisher and Meguires Ultimate Compound still left swirls behind on my car. Thinking of trying a microfibre next time to see if I can get it looking factory fresh. Still looks decent from a few feet away though:



I find the Porsche paint to be super hard in my limited experience. Using the same combo on my son's BRZ took the imperfections out with one pass!
A Yellow pad might be a bit to aggressive and probably needed to be followed up with a finishing polish to remove whatever leftover swirls there are. The 3d One is really nice as it doesn't require a 2nd pass with anything and finishes really well.

I should have added: I followed up the yellow/compound with a finishing pad/polish.

I did a DIY paint job on my center console. Took quite a bit of work but I'm happy with the end result.
