Unless you washed that with sandpaper I'd be astounded if that is wash marring.

What were your polishing steps? As above, I'm thinking it may need more refining?

Looks like either wash marring or marring inflicted from incorrect buffing technique with your microfibre (yes there's a correct way to remove polish residue!).

Please elaborate!

Not even being sarky, I am genuinely interested.

Was this using a rotary, if so I would suggest the polish was not worked for long enough or too much polish was used.

If on a DA then 3M products are hard work. The blue top is not so bad but the yellow and green are damned hard work. I would suggest the 3M blue pad is not ideal for a DA, perfect for a rotary but too soft with a DA as it is absorbing quite a lot of the polishing orbit

I am almost certain that will have been caused from the removal of your polish. It will either be too heavy of a hand, trying to remove too much product in one go, or your cloths are either crap, or clogged, or both. Try re refining, use new cloths to buff off, and don't do big sweeps to remove, take little bites at it with a light motion. If it smears, don't panic, flip the cloth after your initial wipe and do it again, just do it gently and in small chunks

How so? Was it the cloth that you used to wipe down?

How does the IPA wipe cause this?

Because its so poorly lubricated that if you have a sensitive paint it causes the cloth to Marr. Its even too strong in of itself for some finishes. A quality panel wipe, or something like eraser is far superior
