    I got pretty decent results with Auto Glym SRP, Auto Glym EGP and Auto Glym HD wax:

    I've heard the Ultra Deep Shine is also quite good..

    SRP is ok and underrated, it's never going to be as a good as a machine polished finish, but will do a decent job of masking some defects, apply with a slightly damp applicator and work into the paint, for best results 2 layers are needed, then top of with a decent paste wax or sealant for added protection.

    If you are wanting to fill mirror swirls etc, I would go with bilt hammer or zaino z5.
    These both have filling qualities and do a far better job and leave a better finish.
    Follow with a glaze and then a wax.

    Finish should be a lot better.

    Z-5 has very mild fillers but you will see no benefits unless you apply 4-5 + layers, also has no cleaners as it's a stand alone sealant and used as a last step product.

    HJL - yes once it sets its advisable to go over with a wax product to hep protect the finish.

    Baderlfc - regarding the scratches, you will be better off treating them with a either a fine-medium cutting compound to remove them. Autoglym SRP is a polish and it can mask very minor defects but its not designed to remove them. Also the Meguairs Scratch is an extremely poor product (from my experience).

    To be honest here you will be best to avoid the usual off the shelf stuff, its usually not strong enough. You need to go to an online store and looks at the following such as;

    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/polish...sh/cat_16.html

    From the list here, I would get the Sonus SFX-1 Restore Polish. (I have tried & tested this on my aunts black M3 topping off with the SFX 2 & 3).


    For a change I have bought this to try out; (can't see any reason why it shouldn't work)

    http://www.autoglym.co.uk/enGB/produ...6VQ=GI&Range=1

    Also for some of the best products that are genuinely superb try;

    http://www.chemicalguysuk.com/category_s/24.htm

    You could try something like their scratch & swirl remover 160z.

    Also, if you have a polishing machine then its great, if you don't you need to get one in order to get the results. For 5 years Ihave been happily using Peformance Power's 240V polisher. I don't think B&Q do it anymore, but you could get something like http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165640 which is essentialy identical enough. (Sealey also do one via Amazon.co.uk which is a better brand). This is inexpensive yet allows you to get the results and work the products into/onto the paint as required to make them work.

    Take a look at my car when I last did (read the text as well), http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...rnight-t20530/.

    These machine's are never going to correct defects to any degree, you would be better of working the polish by hand, at best they will add a little gloss.
    For defect removal invest in a proper Dual Action polisher or Rotary, combined with the correct pads and polishes you will see a far bigger improvement, the polishing head needs to progressively generate a little heat to brake down the micro abrasives in the polishes and level of the swirls and random scratches.

    True would take longer to layer up but the finish would be a lot better. I wouldn't use it as a LSP as the the durability isn't great so a wax would definitely add to this.
