    Nice work allyp .. Pabs When using any type of machine polisher ie PC,Rotary,DA you will have to use product's/polish that are compatible like Menzerna,3M, Sonus. You have different types of pad's for the amount of correction level needed.. If your car has heavy swirl's and surface scatches then more cutting is reqired . Any product listed will work fine on your car but the car must be 100% clean before using a polisher and after the polishing stage or stages the paint must then be sealed and protected.

    Thanks for all the comments,,i first clayed the car with meguiars clay and cleaned it with Tardis (tar remover good stuff)and used G101 All purpose cleaner for the awkward bits,i may be wrong with the pad make sorry,i was recommended them by a well known detailing shop in aberdeen,Its not a perfect job but for the first time i was well chuffed took 8-9 hours mind you thats not even half done lol As said above think youd need finer pads for the pearlescent paint best to get the right advice before you start though I am on detailing world first post up now after a few years being a member !Great comment Hereford makes it all worth while

    ^^ haha Thats my Signature Pic, Not a post up!
    ...didnt wanna hijack your thread. I used to have a red B6, its on the forum. Yours reminds me of the first time I polished mine up, cant beat the feeling of a Smooooooooth bonnet!.......(hmmmm well you can but you know what I mean ha)

    BTW the RS4 aint 'that' low, it just looks OTT in the pic! - thats what messing around with Photoshop does for you!

    haha yeah it can go that low though once the Bilsteins are on.
    Another forum member had my red one, then I bought a kingfisher blue one...then sold that to some dick who smashed it within a few wks then bought an RS4 but ive always been a fan of the A4 B6, love the whole package - shape, stance, love the high door lines, makes the A4 for me, just looks solid! It aint ruled out that ill return to a B6 but some will tell you I like to be different...lol...
