Yeah I suppose...but I can only hope he ran out of clear coat before his warranty expired.

is what I asked, and his answer was "Yes"

This is the reason why I got this in the first place. Pretty much the dealer promised me "swirl protection"

My concern is now therefore, how harmful is swirl removal, if you do it so often??
Here is the other dilema..........you have the dealership with guys doing the work making bottom of the barrel wages and rarely anyone there who knows what to do in the paint correction dept, so they will try and get your car out the door as quickly as possible(Remember the addage is "Buy low/sell high @ The dealership).

Here is something to ask your "Salesman" if the paint is thinned out to much by doing paint correction will you warranty a paint job?, if not I feel there might be a problem with me doing "Perma plate".
