This article will help you understand the differences between waxing and polishing your car in NZ. The purpose of polishing the paint surface is to correct defects.
Automotive car paint is an example of chemical polishes that chemically clean the paint surface to remove any contaminants or defects. They are not intended to remove swirl marks and are used only for surface preparation.

Clay bars are non-abrasive and can be used before polishing to remove stubborn paintwork deposits. The clay bar can lift deposits from the surface and embed them in itself. It is safe to use and won't scratch your car once the clay has been embedded with the deposits.
Abrasive polishes are best for removing swirl marks. To reach their full potential, abrasive polishes require a machine. You can choose from a random orbital or forced rotation.
After the surface has been prepared, you can wax your car. This is the last step in washing and detailing your car. Waxing serves to protect your paint from the elements. Many waxes have UV inhibitors that protect the paint from the sun. They repel water, which prevents your paint from getting etched by watermarks.
