As Yoda says...

You must unlearn what you have learned...
I was taught that after a car is cut and polished, a polisher should only be used when removing usage scratches or heavy oxidation.

Other than that when doing ANYTHING that requires you to physically interact with the paint surface including waxing, sealers, glazes, washing, and drying the car that you move front to rear only - NOT in a circular pattern.

The reason I was taught this is simple, no matter what materials you use the end result is that you are micro-abrading the paint surface everytime you wash, wax, dry, buff etc.

Moving in front to rear patterns instead of circular reduces the lines you see after the wax starts to bleed off.

2 other things I always use which requires a little more elbow grease is Meguiars #16 paste wax (1x-2x a year max) with Meguiars #7 glaze in between -
when the surface starts to not bead water as well.
