Just got the triple blk vert and they buffed it what the F@#$&! Been using mothers cleaner wax which is working but very time consuming any other suggestions?

You'll probably need something more aggressive than a cleaner wax. Something like 3M's Swirl Mark Remover for Dark Cars #39009

As Bruce said you will need to remove or have someone remove the swirls, only very skilled people should use a buffer on black paint. You do not need to use a cleaner wax on a regular basis unless your car would say sit outside 24/7. Have you tried Mother's FX wax?

Take your time it wont come out to your satisfaction the first time go easy black is non forgiving and it takes patience to get it right. Just dont go too abrasive and keep the buffer off.
