This has made an appearance here before and is well rated so I was pleased to see it on offer again, I bought one for local pickup despite it being out of stock locally so I imagine it isn't a complete wild goose chase...

I've got this DA but it's under a different name, Challenege Extreme. I bought it from Argos last year with the 3yr extended warranty for £47 so couldn't say no.
Done a number of cars with it, literally just got home from my mates to do a test patch on his nasty looking paint, here's the 50/50 shot below left is before and right is after.... The product I used was Meguiars Ultimate Compound and a orange Hexlogic pad. Next would have been the Ultimate Polish with white pad followed by a sealant/wax.

Great dual action polisher for beginner and detailers. Brilliant for removing light swirls and scratches. Gentle on paint so ideal for people new to machine polishing. A meguiars one sells for a few hundred pounds. Granted it’s better quality but this will be ideal for a polish every now and then. Heat added

I'm honestly considering selling my meguiars and buying this, I bought it two years ago and never even used it. This is surely ok for DIY use
Best of luck finding one.

I would certainly think so. Any half decent detailer wouldn’t need to machine polish their car more than once a year if they take care washing and then protecting with a good wax.
Theres one in Caerphilly but I cant be bothered driving 10 miles out of my way.
Just reserved one in Bridgend thanks op
Just searched SE10 and have a few in the SE London area if anyone wants one.
I bought this from Argos - same machine under a different name - and am very happy with it.

You really need to invest in some better pads though. See the Detailing World website for hints and info. I clayed mitted the very poor looking paint on my 1992 project car, which was faded and matt, and this machine and Meguiers Ultimate Compound made a huge improvement in the paint.
Unable to get in stock or delivered by me. Damn
Got one...anyone know where I can get pads for it?

Look at this on eBay ebay.co.uk/itm…637

Try this, can get micro fiber pads also. I used meguiars compound and had good results.
Look up "AMMO detailers" on YouTube and become a master polisher in a couple of hours.

This is a decent beginner polisher, fairly sure it's a DAS6 style iirc. Not much grunt so it will bog down a bit, but this or a DAS6 is the best way to start off, then move up to a DAS6 Pro when you're confident and then move up to a Flex or Rupes. Good pads and product are vital, a good starting point is a Das6 (non-pro or pro), Chemical Guys Green Hex Logic pad and Scholl S20 Black (great 1 step compound and polish combo)

Cheapest pads locally will be from Halfords. Remember to get the correct cut of pads that u need. ie depending on how much cut or polishing u are doing
This only good for compounds? My car is 5 months old and pre wash / 2 bucket / lambswool mitt has helped avoid swirls so looking for something for glazing / sealing / finishing

I'd be worried if it was I was just showing my mate how to polish last night as he's never done it before, I left him to a bit of it and he seemed to take in what I was saying.

This polisher with a black hex logic pad you can add your wax or sealant if you like.

This will be ideal for glazing on a finishing pad. U can experiment with a lower speed. Then as usual apply a sealant and a wax if preferred
Thanks all. Tempted to get one of these now as my hands and arms get pretty sore after 20 years of doing it by hand! (Polishing etc!!!)

You really need one. The difference is like night and day. The finish u can achieve in so little time is well worth the money u pay. The pads can be quite expensive but are washable and reusable. A bottle of descent polish will last years

What pads did you use? Where did you buy yours?
Got my new A4 on Monday, black, full of swirls already.... monkey valeters.

Anybody familiar with the Ryobi Polisher:
halfords.com/mot…ool

I've a stack of 5Ah batteries for my Ryobi kit which would make £50 a reasonable investment.

Just reserved one, thanks op.

Will need to do some reading as never used anything like this before.

Anyone got a link to a good beginners guide with reccomended pads, compounds, waxes, etc.

Any recommendations for polish. For a 10 year old black car that needs some TLC to get the shine back ?

You'd do well to start with Meguiars Ultimate Compound as your cutting compound and then finish with something lighter like Meguiars Ultimate Polish.
I recommend these two as a good starting point and they should work well together for most cars/paints.

Make sure you put a wax or sealant on top!
Autoglym's wax in the gold tin is a good value for money purchase which would be good on your black paint as it contains Carnauba wax which makes the black nice and deep.

All of those should be available in your local Halfrauds

Ooh, you should probably look into decontaminating (fallout remover) and claying your car before you polish.

(Bilthamber Korrosol is supposed to be amongst the best and I love my G3 clay mitt for convenience)

Congratulations, you just found an expensive rabbit-hole hobby

I had great results on very bad paint on my 92 black Saab using a G3 clay mitt - the paint is like glass when you've finished - then Meguiers Ultimate Compound, then Poorboys Black Hole Glaze (Euro car parts usually cheapest), then a wax on top (forget which one).

Thanks might be taking it a little bit far. As car is being sold in a few weeks.


So best bet a cutting compound and then an actual polish ? I assume I need a fine cutting compound.

Could I be lazy and use something like Auto Finesse Tripple

Ah, in that case, yup Tripple would work well and so would Autoglym's Super Resin Polish which is a comparable product (although there are differences).

I haven't used Tripple (just read up about it for ya though) although I have used SRP and it's great if you like to cheat (fill the scratches with a filler)

Just a note, it sounds like you don't really need a polisher like the one in the OP then. It's easy to get good results with SRP by hand. The only advantage is if you wanted to save a little time I guess

Thnaks I might give triple a go. Have a lot of SRP but it tends to split if left in ahead.

Will polish my car properly but misses car is off so I can properly protect her new one. With all the tips you have given.
Jonj161120/09/2019 08:45

What pads did you use? Where did you buy yours?


Pads I use Orange hex logic with ultimate compound, then white pad to polish with Ultimate Polish.
I got mine from Argos a little over a year ago, my mate who I've been showing how to use is going to buy mine so I'll be upgrading to something else
If you want a better end product, cheaper and combines both a compound and polish; get Scholl S20 black and a green hex logic pad

P.s. I do this for a living
What size is the backing plate on this so I know which size pads are correct?
I have the Challenege Extreme version, used it 2 / 3 times, great machine, i managed to get few scratches out and polish up the paint. The power lead is a bit short at 2m, you can find a guide on how to extend the cable which i was going to do but ...

I now have a issue with it, using it on speed 6, the speed dial will drop to 4 / 5 due to the vibrations.
anyone else seen this?
May walk in tomorrow and see if i can get it swapped out.
