Right, as I have the BMW at the moment, and its old and has them crappy swirl marks in the paint, I obvioulsy need to give it a good wash and wax etc

Sooooo

What are the best products I can use to get the paintwork looking better? :)

thankoo, paul

Paul - are you working by hand? BMW paint is extremely hard, so you'll get little in the way of actual correction, but you'll still be abel to get a great finish.

As suggested, a good claying session is the best place to start. Then depending on how far you'd like to go, you can polish>glaze>seal>wax. This will give you the best look and protection possible.

If you don't want to go that far, you should go for a minimum polish>wax combo.

What colour is the car?

Gareth :)

Clay the car with a stronger clay - like the Poorboy's one. Don't forget you need a detailing spray to use as a lubricant.

Then, depending on how far you want to go and what finish you want, you can either go for the full set up, or a polish and wax. Which do you fancy?

Gareth :)
