Go for it mate! Just been looking on cyc.co.uk and its 199.99 on there so your getting a good deal! I always see the 2 Megs polishes popping up so they both must be very good. Ive got Megs#205 but havnt had the chance to use it yet. One thing i would say is you might want to look into getting some spot pads (75mm) for the tighter areas like around the number plate or headlight lenses etc. I dont think Megs do them but i have 3M ones aswell as the larger pads. My pads are only 5" aswell so you'll find them especially usefull with those 7" mamas! My friends had my G220 for ages now and is in his words on another forum 'attackin' his BMW at the minute! I expect it back dead I bought the Menz pads with my car of the month winnings on cyc a while back but nearly died when i felt how hard they were! My mate is using them on said BM and ive asked him if he wants to buy them as i fancy the CG Hexi Logic pads. Its alll a bit confusing getting pads but the Megs ones look great. I know theres a lad on here who posted pics of his 156 (i think) corrected with the same Megs polishes and it was amazing! In the pics there were reflections of his perspex shelter in the bonnet. MAybe someone can remember it?? Im sure others will give you more guidance as im a novice. All i know is the Squaddron will look unreal! Oh and this 'bible' might just help abit! http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...ad.php?t=63859
Its a guide by DaveKG off DW and its awesome help. You can dl it in PDF format.

It only took 10 minutes to do really and what can be more boring than sunbathing? I like to get out of the sun and keep busy whereas my lass just bakes all day!

Tell me about it! The 'instructions' wernt up to much! When i went to put the handles on i realised the base was 90 degress wrong so if you wanted to pull it the wheels were dragging sideways! Had to undo the screws and get Claire to hold the legs which all just fell over when i took the screws out! I also used the screws for the handles for the vents and tried for ages to screw the handles on before noticing!

I'll start to worry when I read you're trying to correct swirls in the lid with a DA !
