    Megs 3 stage is ok and certainly better than Autoglym.

    But for a little bit more money i would use Dodojuice with out question! This stuff is great. Lime prime is so easy to use as a 1st step and then use one of there waxes that suites the colour of your car

    Then for a sealer you cant go wrong with Colinite 915. This stuff is incredible and is soo hard wearing you will not belive it.

    as usual halfrauds ( halfuds) have there 3 for 2 deal on and was looking at a few, i have always been loyal to autoglymn but i recon the product is good think it may be my cloths but have never had this prob before and have done hundreds including my own , well hacked off, everyone always comments on my cars and there finish but i need a polish that wont cause swirling as its brand new paint, i do fancy megs but as said mixed reviews and can be expensive for what it is , lots of good about dodo gear and others also some surprise cheapos doing good to, i usually polish my car a couple of times a week probably way to much and am think to go down the polish and then carnuba wax way , i used to do the jewelultra coatings on cars for hundreds and tbh was never that impressed, the latest i used was a paint preserver pureguard ( interclean stuff) just after washing with no sealants etc applied and was impressed but i am getting my osd lol kicking in to polish mee car as i have only done it twice since it was resprayed even though everyone keeps saying i have polished it , i wish i had

    I use the AG SRP, can't fault it for a quick polish to be honest mate - easy on easy off and cures really fast.

    If you want to get rid of the swirls i'd use 3m finesse-it, you can use it by hand or machine and it'll get rid of swirls quickly You could also try the AG cotton polishing cloths its what I use and there really soft. Remember to go in small circular motions overlapping each other to avoid swirl marks. I've just mopped over my car with G3 and the 3m product and its come out "blinging"

    2 coats of turtle wax and it should be good to go for a month atleast because I can't be arsed washing it again, spent nearly 4 hours on Monday
