Best bet mate is to buy a da polisher to restore your paint work or try using swirl x from meguairs will remove some but not them all if your using a hand method

DA polisher will sort them out or a lot of elbow grease... SwirlX worked great for me but I suppose it depends on how bad the swirls are. I belive the Megs Ultimate Compound is very good too.

There are loads of posts on this ;)

Hi mate, a "da" is a dual action machine polisher meaning it spins in a circle, but it also oscillates, where as the alternative is a rotary machine polisher which spins only on a single orbit. Rotarys tend to be used more by the pros which tend to give quicker paint correction results than a da.
enthusiasts tend to go for da's as they are less aggresive than a rotary.:D
