I am somewhat of a newcomer so please bear with me.
First things first: itís good to make your acquaintance. Heard this was the place to come for all things detailing so I wanted to reach out.
Just picked up a '00 BMW 540i. Paint is in above average condition, but not stellar. It gives all the indications of a weekend washer who threw a quick coat of carnauba on every season and prob parked in the garage every PM. Nothing drastic, just swirls from casual hand washing/waxing techniques and minor to moderate scratches from usage as a DD.
I will be taking a rotary to it eventually and was wondering what product combo do you recommend to accomplish the following while working w/the BMW's "hard" paint:
(a.)clean up 2000-2500 WS marks from scratch removal
while at the same time
(b.)then remove the swirls I won't be WS on the rest of the car
Thinking maybe M105 followed by a 4or5 and a 2 polish (according to this chart: http://www.auto-geek.net/charts/wax-chart.pdf
) to remove ws scratches and then just a 4or5 followed by a 2 for the swirls on the rest of the car. Are there any 6or7 and a 2 combos for removing both ws scratches and swirls, thus skipping the m105? I have a standard variety of pads i'll be working with.
Still uncertain even after quite a bit of research.
Any input, info, wisdom is much obliged, so thanks ahead of time!
