    Need advice on new to Porsche Boxster

    I just picked up a 2013 Boxtser S the other day. The paint (white) is in good condition but does have some swirls from previous owner. I have a Porter Cable and was looking for advice on polish to use to clean up the swirl marks. My previous cars never had notable swirl marks so I never needed to do much correction.

    I see this is your first post, Hi, and welcome to AGO!!!

    The best thing to do is browse the "How To's" section of the forum. How to Articles
    Anything you do, you'll want to do a test spot first, using the least aggressive products.

    Porsche paint is soft (IMO) and is very easily correctable. I would look into the Menzerna Compound/Polish. They did very well for me when I worked on a Porsche Boxter too!

    Thanks! That was the kind of more car specific feedback I was hoping to get. Nice work, that paint looks amazing after.
