Raza, nice work! I have a couple of questions..

1. What products do you use?
2. Have you been staying out of trouble?

sonus is one of the few things i have not tried. if i showed you the pile of products in my garage i used once and never used again you would think im crazy.

if you are new then id recommend adams polishes. they are really easy and forgiving for newbies. adams swirl/haze product combine with the revive polish puts out really nice results when used with lake county pads.

if you need help with something like that feel free to shoot me a PM.

Thanks asturias!

Please remember that its mostly all about technique and time. Good products will help you get to the results with a good technique.

What Meguiars products were you using?

I will be posting the full detail of my car when its done, but its been taking way too long, there is no single detail that I let go on it. Its quite obsessive

Your input again appreciated!
I never used Griots products, but there is something that I think that you should take into consideration:

A car doesn't need to be polished very often, it just needs to have its finish taken care of.

Its much better if you go over with the Porter Cable, starting with the least aggressive polish and pad combination. If that doesn't solve the de-swirling, then you go up a step. Correct the paint and then finish it up with a finishing polish + finishing pad. After this you can glaze it and apply the wax/sealant.

The way that you wash the car after this is what is going to dictate how long your paint will be swirl free. A proper wash technique with two buckets and the right washing materials is absolutely essential. On that note, I may just make a tutorial on how to wash your M5 when the weather is a bit better here

What do you mean with the over and under?

I have the whole line of the Sonüs products and I find them to be very user friendly. I find the finishing polish SFX3 to be quite good actually

We will arrange a morning to give your car a proper wash and another coat of wax
