    I'd been looking at the swirls i had for too long. Spent hours doing it by hand but to no avail. In the end i borrowed my mates Kestral DAS 6 and let a machine do it for me and below are the results!

    used sonus polish and pads by the way








    thanks for looking

    lager plus sun plus iPod made the 8 hours fly by!

    I tried to get some before shots but the camera wouldn't pick the swirls up unfortunately, there were loads though

    mark you make a good point, can't believe I missed them!

    Fingers crossed they don't come back, it was hard work, to be fair to BMW the paint is bloody hard stuff!
