    Thats the place, only 15mins drive from me and very very cheap

    Have you got the swirl free polish (no82 IIRC) to finish it off with? cos a 7/10 cut rate is pretty harsh. What colour is your car?

    Interesting it says to use with a rotary polisher and no mention of using a DA one. Wonder why...something to do with how the compound breaks down possibly?

    Diminishing abrasive's. I thought it was a gimmick but it works. With a DA it'll take hours to generate enough speed/heat to break them down properly, possibly marring the surface especially if its black

    I used to like using the megs stuff because the way it spreads and it has a long working time but gone back to my old ways of using the 3m stuff..

    Because your cars black have you had a look into the 3m ultrafina SE - it'll remove the holograms/swirls and polish in one application
