Paging: Some one with a good eye!

Fellow 2008 M3 owners with 19" wheels...need you assistance and professional opinions! I need you to take a CLOSE look at your shiny metallic rim IN THE LIGHT. Do you see hundreds of little tiny swirl-like marks going in all directions depending on your angle. Say it ain't so! Scratches from cleaning or am I bugging? I was told not to worry about small scratches when dealing with wheel washing/waxing so i wasn't AS compulsive about it as when washing the body of the car. Washed them with sponges and CF materials. Have I damaged my rims or is it just the normal metal appearance?

I have some. I thought it was me also when I used a non micro fiber brush on one wheel. After that I quickly switched over to micro fiber even on the wheels. Don't sweat it.
