yes good result - £50.00 off what I wanted and he's happy to wait until my new motor is ready. I was dreading having to deal with the usual tyre kickers. It will still be sad having to part with a good motor - just glad I haven't had to sell it for a knock down price to some shady dealer. I have reservations about whether or not I'll get on with the Kia - if not, I'll just have to punch myself in the face a few times for a major error of judgement as I was sorely tempted by the excellent deal I was offered by a Mazda dealer for an old model CX5!
Never mind, I'm at the age that my next new car will probably be a Honda Jazz or something equally exciting and the weekly highlight will be lunch at a garden centre - s*** this is getting depressing.

I have a DAS 6 pro with both a soft black and a medium yellow Merzerna pads, and Menzerna 2-200 med cut, and 3- 800 super finish.
From what you are saying I would be best to use Black pad and the 3-800 polish ?


DAS pro fine :s_thumbsup

Menzerna SF ( Otherwise known as FF for Final Finish) also bang on and is excellent quality polish. I use almost exclusively Menzerna polishes.

I would start by using the soft pad.

Make sure the pad is damp ow even slightly wet.

Apply sparingly.

Use a nice slow speed don't go fast nice and slow far better. Do a small area and examine to see if correction is happening. It should Menzerna is a technical effective polish.

If not move to the harder pad but keep things wet ! Very important this as the water helps the tiny particles in Menz break down and get to work.

Menzerna keeps in grade its cut remains VERY consistent which means it cuts at the same rate throughout the polishing it does not reduce and cause confusion and grief like many polishes do.

Soft pad Menz FF or SF perfect !! :s_thumbsup
