Which polish/wax do you use ?
I recently WON an Autoglym competition and received afree bottle of their latest polish "Ultra Deep Shine" - haven't had change to use it yet tho.
I have used their products in the past and they do seem good, if a little pricey.

Currently in SportTourer's garage:

It's a Turtle Wax one but I use AutoGlym for everything else (wheel seal etc.) and will probably try their polish and wax etc.

I have found that Autoglym gives best performance on the paler coloured Renault Paint, I have a 2001 Laguna Privy in Moondust and nothing has yet come close for depth of shine, etc. I tried that new ultra deep shine stuff, but it definatly suits darker colours and is not as good as the original resin polish on lighter shades. Use a polish as oppose to a cutting agent (T-cut) over and over, you reduce the risk of dulling a spot.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I'd use Farecla G3. Paint shops sell it as does Screwfix!

It really is the best and used by the trade to buff up cars. Gets shot of scratches and swirls etc.

Use with a bit of water at first then loads of water by the end to get the shine. I use a drill mop on an electric rechargeable drill (with variable speed). DONT use an angle grinder! They are too fast and WILL burn the paint! You need slower speeds to polish!!!

I've used it on kit cars, through to complete car polishes!

Then THE best wax is Zaino Pro with accelarator. Pricey but really worth it! Do a google search in the uk for Zaino.
