Get someone to machine polish it ideally someone who knows what they are doing so they don't make it worse

Speak to some local detailers and get a quote for it to be properly machine polished. Be prepared for it not to be cheap, but expect a proper job that will be far beyond what you'll achieve yourself. It's not hugely helpful quoting prices randomly as it will depend what you want achieved, how bad it currently is, and location (from what I see there are fairly significant variations in pricing regionally).

I do detailing correction and protection.like Reggie said it's not cheap but pricing depends on what treatment you want.1 or 2 stage polishing will not remove all swirls but will really enhance colour and shine.correction is a 3 stage polish with lambs wool and other various heads and polishes.depending how deep and hard your paintwork is will also effect price just for the simple fact it could take more time and product.all VAG paint I have come across so far is very tough and does take time but the benefits are massive.once correction and protection is done the surface of the paint is incredibly smooth,shiny and reflective.
