Can't say i've used them before, but when i've been sidetracked onto detailing sites some of the more impressive details usually seem to involve their products.

Got any pictures of yours after this? Although always was stunning :drool:

didnt get any pics this time but trust me the intensive polish did more than some of my other tried & tested polishes.
of course this was using a PC so i doubt i would have got the same finish by hand.
think i have found a good working combination with this and a megs cutting pad.
it must have looked good also as i had a couple of people comment when they walked past come late afternoon, one of which asked me if i had just had it resprayed :)

Same. Heard very good reports on the full range of products :)

Also, Swissvax are meant to be very good :)

i don't use anything but the Menzerna products for paint correction, the finish you can achieve with this range is nothing but amazing especially when used with a rotary mop. check out these pics of a beetle i did earlier in the year, first hit was with PO85RD3.02 intensive polish and then finished off with PO85RD final finish 8-)

oh yeah, definitely. i started out with a pc, the rotary is a bit challenging if you have never picked up any sort of mop before. i have just replaced the pc with a meguiars g220 as i use it to finish with but the extra cut it has got is unbelievable. i did a one day job on a merc slk amg a few weeks ago and used the g220 and was amazed that it managed to remove all the swirls with just a few deeper scratches left, and mercs are notorious for rock hard paint!

so you would say the megs is better than the PC?
i know it does have a bit more power but the PC is ok for me as i dont use it that often

going on my results with it so far, yes, no doubt.
i will say that i am now on my second machine as the first one gave up the ghost after a months use but megs replaced it very quickly, no questions asked within a couple of days. they sent me a new one and picked up the knackered one at the same time.

I prefered the PC, although the g220 was more user friendly and easier on the arms, the finish with the PC was better with the same pad and polish combo !

to be honest i haven't noticed any difference in the finish between the two machines except the g220 has more 'cut' but each to their own :)
