Default Paint help

What's up guys? I have a serious problem with my paint job that I thought someone could give me some advice on. I recently went to one of those do-it-yourself carwashes. When I finished washing, I noticed streaks covering the entire car. They appear to be UNDER the paint, disgracing the entire car. Anyone know what could have caused this, or how to fix it??

are there streaks or scratches? i normally dont go to the diy carwashes cause the brushes are hard on your paint. all the dirt and **** from the others cars rubbing on yours gives you swirls and scratches and **** try a claybar

Thier are streaks, plus splothes throughout the paint. Looks terrible.

How long did you wait after you got it painted to wash it? Arent you suppose to wait like a month to paint and then a couple weeks after that to wax?

That's odd. Did you use the wax option at the carwash?

I sure did. Funny thing is, I had used the same car wash the week before without the wax, and the car looked great.
