    Re: Advice is Needed

    Not great deal for removing swirls/scratches...So, I have switched to Sonax Polish and Wax Nano Pro Color (black)...It definitely performed better as far as it has filled into the micro scratches ...So, of course the scratches are still there, but at least they are less visible...

    My conclusion is that it is very hard if not impossible to remove even fine scratches when working by hand, especially when it comes to dark colored paints...So, I think I will switch to machine polisher...

    Re: Advice is Needed

    Just a quick input here, if you want to use pre-wax product with fillers, a glaze or pure polish will help. Glazes/Pure Polishes should also add more depth (making your already shiny BMW better). Pure polishes would be Deep Crystal Pure Polish or M07 Show Car Glaze. These can be applied by hand with considerably less effort than UC or UP, but must be removed while wet, not to be allowed to dry to a haze. Used as directed, any of these will make your car's paint look richer and deeper, and make those micro-scratches less visible.

    An additional step, but in my experience, definitely worth it.

    Re: Advice is Needed

    And, one more: I have already purchased DA polisher. So, I will be working with machine. My plans are following:

    Plan A

    1. Wash

    2. No claying as far as car was clayed 2 weeks ago and paint was cleaned with P21 S paintwork cleanser

    3. Ultimate Polish

    4. Ultimate Wax

    5. P21 s carnauba wax

    Plan B

    Just the same, but if Ultimate polish will be ineffective in removing swirls, I thought to use UC before UP and than follow up with the same steps of waxing

    So, here is my question: Where can I fit the Deep crystal polish in those plans?

    For example, does it make sense to use DCP after UP?

    You won't need the Deep Crystal Polish after Ultimate Polish.

    Ultimate Polish is heavy in polishing oils, similar to those in DCP. You could, but it would be redundant.
