    have a look at polishedbliss site.. they have the names of the kit and a shop that sells them. You'd get a quicker answer calling them direct than posting here too as they have got busy!

    I guessed you missed the stickies at the top of the section then?! Okay, the first thing to do is clean the paint properly (after a wash), using a clay bar. This will ensure every last trace of contamination is removed, which is very important, becuase if you polish over the top of contaminants you can end up with a poor swirly finish. If this is new to you, see this guide on why and how...

    Then you are going to need to polish your paint, to remove the knackered surface layer and expose a beautiful layer of fresh paint beneath. You can do this by hand or machine, but machine is best. See this illustrated guide for details about both methods and recommended products for Audi paint...

    Once polished, you will then need to rewax to seal in the finish, and as long as you then wash the car carefully in the future you should not see serious defects returning again.

    If you intend to work by hand then glazing the paint with the Blackfire Gloss Enhancing Polish (after claying) is a great idea, as it will boost gloss and help to hide many of the visible defects (provided you then seal the finish to lock in the fillers - in this respect your suggested method/list is ideal). However, please note that this method won't hide everything. The only way to restore the paint back to perfect condition would be to machine polish it, in which case you would then need to swap to a two stage approach using Menzerna RD3.02 followed by Menzerna 85RD (as illustrated in the guide linked above). Thus, in summary, what you have chosen is a good hand method, but won't deliver perfect results - to restore perfection you will need a machine and a different approach, bnut this will involve a lot more time and cost.
