If you are having a detailer remove swirls (i.e. mechanically polish the car), I would be worried about having clearcoat failure after a couple of years. Every time you remove swirls (if you are getting a polish) removes a thin layer of clearcoat. Normally, it wouldn't matter but if you are doing this every month, 3 years or 36 polishes later, you run the risk of having issues. You might be fine but it would make me VERY nervous.

Anyway, just a comment and a suggestion to reduce it to a polish maybe every 6 months... plus, a good detailer who is polishing a car would be charging $500+ per detail and that would be crazy expensive to do monthly.
