    That's cheap, but don't forget the charge made by the dealer to sync the OBD to wipe the fault codes associated with the polish.

    Wouldn't surpise me in the least in my present mood of having a downer on BMW...

    Nearly fell off the chair laughing

    Thanks for the tip Unknownsoldier, I will do as you said, couple of layers, nice and thin!

    forgot to ask, I know the applicator pad should be moist/damp but when buffing off/up, should I do it with a damp cloth or keep that one dry?

    Cheers

    Definitely dry....... unless you have accidentally added too much wax then buff with a damp cloth then with a dry one, otherwise it shouldn't be necessary....

    I also find some Megs quick detailer is good if a contaminant on your paint has caused smearing...... do you clay your car???

    I dont, I just wash it every weekend, handwash with car shampoo and rinse with a jet spray- thats it.

    I wash it every weekend so the car looks nice and shiny all the time, but then I saw some pics in the detailing forum, the one where that bird shat over the car in Bristol (my god that was some crazy sh*t on the car, never seen anything like it in my whole life), and suddenly thought need to wax/polish my car!

    LOL, or buy a shotgun and a bird scarer...... ok, it will still do a great job and it does protect your paint finish well..... :-)

    That is a great point. Have a go at claying, it is not as hard as it may appear and the difference is tremendous.
