We recently had one of our clients bring in her black 2001 Jaguar XJR that she has had and babied since it was new. The car was in good shape, but she wanted to prepare the car for the summer heat by doing some routine maintanence such as cleaning and treating the carpet, vinyl, and leather. As anyone that has ever owned a black car will tell you, black is not just a color, but a part time job. Black paint is beautiful when it is clean, but it does not hide dirt, debris, pollen, smudges, or marring very well. Marring is a term to describe blemishes in the paint that look like swirl marks that tend to appear over time especially on darker finishes. She wanted to eliminate the surface scratches and protect the paint to prevent future marring. The paint was in good shape for its age, we wanted to restore it to its original depth, brilliance, and optical clarity. The marring was most noticable on the horizontal surfaces, such as the hood, roof, and trunk lid, but for its age, the paint was in good shape. Our client wanted to restore the paint to its original depth, brilliance, and optical clarity by eliminating these surface scratches and taking this finish to the next level.
The top of the car when it came in. This is very common for finishes on newer and older cars although it is most visible on darker paints. This can be caused by a variety of reasons, but with the right products and equipment, it is very treatable. 
When the car came in, the trunk lid looked similar to the hood and roof. Although the horizontal surfaces showed the most marring, the verticle surfaces had some as well. The vertical sides such as fenders and doors needed some attention as well.
