First time using an orbital buffer. Spent a couple of hours using the new PC 7424 Polisher and high intensity halogen lights in the garage around midnight. Those lights sure make the swirls stand out. The results were pretty good. Don't know how I ever did without an electric buffer; A whole lot better than old fashioned elbow grease.

Used Meguiars SCRATCH X to remove scratches and swirls, then followed up with a coat of Klasse AIO. This morning, in natural light, you can see absolutely no swirls at all. I'll add a coat of Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze later. Hopefully I'll increase the shine even more.


The picture really doesn't capture the detail. Nothing sweeter than a shiny Black BMW.

The beater is a 2001 Ford Taurus... company car that I drive to work daily. Not a bad deal actually, get to keep the miles off the M3 and the gas/oil is paid for. Plus I get a new one every 2 years.

I have always waxed my new cars, never had a problem with it. With a Black car (my 4th one), they just do not look good unless you detail them constantly IMHO.
