    Guys im getting impatient and cant wait to get my e46 this summer, im preparing everything from now, the body kits, rims, lights, so i know how my project will look like, i want it black.

    I now want to find out what is the best car polish that will bring out that black, leave a very good shine and no soap marks?

    And also a polish machine which you could recommend?

    how much do you want to spend?

    you could spend £20 or you could spend £500, so how much you got?

    i see what you mean after watching some car wash program, where a guys shampoos and waxes costed £1300!!!!

    But for shampoos and polishes i dnt mind going upto £20-30 as long as their good in bringing out the colour and gives me a good clean.

    for the machine, il be spending my money on rims and body parts for my project so will wnt to go upto £100 for a machine?

    would that be ok?

    Much is said about the Meguiars G220. They are in pretty short supply at present. I bought an almost identical KESTREL from Mark at Autobritedirect for a fraction of the cost, well under £100. Having used it in anger on a black car I have been very impressed. I used it with 3M pads and Meguiars polish.

    Some of the Autoglym polishes can be very chalky and leave a lot of dust. The Meguiars polishes tend to be cleaner to use

    Yeah, the Meg's 3 stage is a good idea..

    And Halfrauds have 3 for 2 offer on, so you get the 3 stage for approx £17

    Black...mmm...lovely colour.

    Ok, half the battle is your washing technique. Pre soak,2 buckets, decent mitt (no sponges) and keeping your gear clean will minimise the chances of what they call "marring" in the paint.

    If you look at 98% of the cars in a car park in sunlight, you'll see the cobwebs in the paint caused by crappy washing. minature little scratches making the paint look dull.

    This is what you want to get rid of and then, once you've got rid of it, you dont want it back! (hence the decent washing technique!)

    Theres things you can do. You said you want a polisher? ok, you can polish the marring out with a DA. Bm's can be harder than nails on the paint front, but perserverance is the key. Have a look on Detailing world, theres some fantastic guides on how to use a DA and what polishes and waxes work and what dont.

    A lot can be said for using stuff like auto glyms super resin polish, that has a lot of "fillers" in it that can hide the scratches very well. Its one of those products that a lot of people dont use properly. If you learn to use it properly, it can work wonders. Dont just slaver it on, then wipe it off. If you work it in, in small sections then it can look great.

    Wax? Personal choice. You gotta try some to see what works for you and your style.
    I've tried a few, P21S is ok, looks nice and wet, but longevity is a bit limited.
    Dodojuice is very good. Blue velvet looks fab and so far hasnt let me down.

    Like i said, its a big deep world!!
