I can see loads of poor reviews


They aren't using it right then. Wish I still had the 50/50 shots of my Type R, the paint on Honda cars is generally soft so didn't take any work at all.
I've still got videos of the Range Rover I did two weeks ago, the paint was extremely swirled and it's removed 85% of them.
Ignore the bad reviews, you'll get them with any item these days.

Cheers, my silver golf needs brightening up a bit , ive just clayed it using bilt hamber and I have their wax so that might do the trick.
I've got Meguiars Ultimate compound, Ultimate Polish, Ultimate Wax & Ultimate Shine.
I used a bit of each and wasn't impressed with the amount of elbow grease and towels / applicator pads you need.

A lot of effort and time is required for these items.

Bilt hamber products are amazing I've got their regular and soft clays. Prefer the soft one if I'm honest. I see so many people applying to much pressure when claying and then they mar the paint.
Silver is an easy colour to work with, try some Meguiars Ultimate polish if you don't want to compound it, but the polish will only last a few months or so depending on how you look after it

Thanks I’ll bear that in mind when I reorder clay
it’s going to get a srp then the Bilt hamber double wax and see what that looks like
if that’s not great I’ll try the meguirs ultimate polish

When you clay your putting more scratches and swirls in the paint so the polish will fill them.
I'd honestly polish then wax to seal it in, but I never tell people what to so just advise
Yes that’s what I was going to do srp
autoglym super resin polish then wax
This is a great produc,t but from personal experience you'll need a machine to get the best results. If you're using this by hand you're mad (unless it's only a small scratch you're trying to get out)

Hello mate.
I only lease cars now so don't have any emotional attachment to them. But I want to keep my cars clean.
I used to take them to hand car wash for £5 until I saw the damage they do.

So with my current lease I use APC to start. Snow foam. Wash with many mitts 1 bucket. So once I have used the microfiber mitt on one panel it's never used again until it's gone in the washing machine.
Then rinse, rinse with open hose to draw water off . Then apply Geon Wetcoat which is a Spay on wax.

Thing is I'm looking at going for Evezy next. Which is basically a hire car service. Unless I'm the first user. I expect the paint to be swirl city.

If I do the above? But use this polish by hand first. Then apply Geon Wetcoat, will that be a good idea? How long would that keep the swirl's at bay?

I'm interested in getting Fusso 99 as a paste wax. However I'm thinking waxing a hire car like that is a step too far.
You only give the car back when you want. So technically I could drive the same car for years. Not sure what you suggest?

Was this on a BMW by any chance? Their clear coat is super tough to cut into by hand. I've used this on my Z4 and it only just started to remove light swirling after a good 20-30mins of hard graft. Used it on my dad's Peugeot and it was a helluva lot easier.

For best results, you'll need a dual action polisher. Good results are possible with elbow grease but be prepared to sink hours into doing each panel.

APC should just be for your engine bay, interior panels or cloth seats. You want citrus pre wash instead of the APC to spray the car mate, I use a 50/50 mix of that.
Snow foam is a good call on cars that aren't swirled, it just makes it less easy to scratch.

I usually citrus, then power wash, snow foam, power wash, then two bucket method starting from the roof, then working my way down the car. I use a Meguiars mitt, hate to imagine how many I've been through over the years.
You can get away with just either a snow foam or citrus, you don't have to do both I'm just a bit OCD lol.
Oh and have another mitt and bucket for the alloys, never cross contaminate them.

For drying I use a large Klein duo towel, found it to be the best out of all the ones I've tried over the years.
Wax doesn't hide swirls as well as polish does. If your buying a swirled car, machine polish it first, then polish, then wax with a paste wax as you get really good results from paste.

Are you after a certain colour? As some colours are easier to hide marks than others, white is a hard one to see swirls but they're all there.
It's nice to see people looking after their cars even if it is a lease or PCP

The stuff I use is Koch chemmie green Star. Not sure if that's an APC or citrus thing. Bilt hamber auto foam and bilt hamber auto wash.
Probably going to eight below foam as it's more clingy.

Well it would be a hire car so I'm presuming I wouldn't have a choice mate. So definitely won't be machine polishing it. Do you think polish and then wax a hire car is too far. Even if I kept the car for 2 years?
Just love the reflection on black, red or blue cars. But hate the swirl's in direct sunlight

No course not, any car I get I make look new lol. The only one I didn't have to mess with was my mk3 Focus RS, that was 3 months old when I bought it, the bloke I bought it from really looked after it. I've currently got a Fn2 Civic Type R and if you see the paint when I got it you'd of been disgusted lol, luckily I've turned it round and it looks really good.
You'll be driving round in it for 2 years so don't blame you wanting the car to look nice at all. I said when I sold my Range Rover Sport I'd never buy a black car again, such a nightmare to maintain and simple things like washing them in sunlight you get water marks etc.
What kind of car you going for?

38334482-ne6k1.jpgThat's the lease I have now. With lease you get to choose colour so went with silver. Think the black plastics go well with it.
Hides swirls really well.
Evezy are a hire company who specialise in electric cars. Probably start with the BMW i3. Make sure electric is for me. Then move on to Tesla. They are well known to have rubbish paint. But I'm hoping it will be sorted after my lease ends

I've had great success on the better half's champagne gold K12 Micra using Fusso Coat, after a wash and clay, it honestly lasts 6 months but does tend to clog microfibres due to it's tackiness
I use poorboys products, they work, but the nest is they can be used in the sun, and they don’t take much effort to put on and polish off, I only do car twice a year and it beads all year round

You’ll likely need a much heavier compound for that and a cutting pad with a dual action polisher. There’s some excellent products out there. I’ve got a few different ‘poorboys’ compounds which have different levels of ‘cut’ so to speak (abrasiveness) that I’m intending to use soon with a meguiars cutting pad and DA polisher to get my swirls out. I’ve also got Autoglym Super Resin Polish which is great product and will finish the car off with Autoglym high definition wax.
Always 2 bucket (with grills) method of washing your pride and joy to stop extra scratches.
Unfortunately there’s no getting away from the hard work you have to put in to cleaning a car to get it looking amazing, especially when starting out with a scratched / swirled car, but worth it when you get the results right, and then it should be easier to maintain!

I think it depends on how much you can ‘feel’ the scratch. If you run your fingernail over scratches you can feel most, even light ones. I would suggest trying a cutting compound with polisher first to see what results you get, and if not happy then you’ve lost nothing (other than some cash buying the products which you’ll then have for future cleaning) if you’re going to need to get it painted again. Maybe try and borrow someone’s polisher and products to try. If the scratches from keying are obviously very deep rather than surface, then clearly no amount of polishing will get them out

Yeah this stuff is great for the price and will remove scratches but I would say only with a microfiber pad on a machine polisher (they have the most cut) then refine it afterwords

But if it's very deep then only way is re spray
