              And if you've taken it to 'one of them car washes', you may want to spend a while on the polishing applying more pressure as to remove the swirl marks which will undoubtedly have accumulated themselves!

                    thats what happened to mine, let them do it twice and could see swirls. To cut the story short, i'v now spent a lot on car cleaning products and a lot of time washing the car.

                    You'll become obsessed soon as well!

                        Will do pal Busy for the next 3 weekends though so it'l be anytime after then, having a rotary polisher soon too so I'll get a bit of practice in on that before we do yours, or just allow some more time and use the DA

                              Yeah they are it just takes a long time to achieve correction, you might be better off with the one daz has (Das-6 pro). think this ones more powerful so it's faster and cutting than the one I have atm.
