Orange peel is high and low spots in the pain work if you look at your car you will see you don't Hsve perfect reflection looks more ripples.the only way to really remove them is to wet sand the paint work to remove the high spots and then polish back with machine to get perfect reflection.Most cars have the orange peel but also if its really bad orange peel can be a sign of a repair

It is called 'orange peel' because that is what the surface of the paint looks like - it is the texture, not necessarily the colour.
