That's why I had my dealer only remove the protective plastic and the interior covering. Let's face it .... most (not all) dealerships have a guy with a hose, a bucket, a towel and a chamois cleaning car after car after car all day long. They just don't have the manpower or time to treat your car the way you would treat it.

Presuming that you're not proficient with a rotary buffer, your best results with be from a Porter Cable random orbital buffer/polish/sander (whatever you want to call it.)

I agree with Jeffs386 that you need a product like 3M Perfect It II or Mothers PowerPolish with a cutting pad to properly remove the swirls. Even with a PC, you might have to spend a little time to get the desired results. And depending on how bad they are, you might want to take it to a professional with a rotary buffer to get you back to a swirl-free finish that you can maintain from there.

By hand you can really only hope to diminsh the swirls with a multi-step system like Zaino or Mothers or Meguiars. For an over-the-counter product, Mothers Sealer/Glaze (Step 2) does a good job of hiding swirls.
