    Go get it professionaly detailed. I wouldn't try anything else unless you know what your doing. Usually a total exterior car detail will cost you anywhere from $75-$150. Depending on where you go. Good luck

    yeah i would advise either rubbing compounds with a high speed buffer or even sand paper (1000-2000 grit wet sandpaper) but the easiest way without all the work would pay someone to do it for you =) saves a LOT of time and effort
