Polishing

Well I was just wondering what the deal is with polishing your car. My car is white, and doesnt need a polish yet at all, but i was wondering whether these Polishes that companies try to sell really work, like Meguires. Do they work or not, or do they just cover scratches and swirl marks up.

Also does anyone know of any Companies in Brisbane that are good for getting new cars polished up?

There's a real good cream polish that the smash repairers use. It's a 3M product that gets all the scratches and marks, which really brings out the true colour of the car.

Buggered if I could remember what the product was called. I've seen a C2R display Falcon that had that stuff put on it. Magic.

I just had my car professionally polished and the guy there (who did an awesome job) told me two interesting things. One is that he always uses Kitten car polish to finish with (the one in the green tin you can get from Kmart for about $8).
The second thing was a product that was like a lump of playdough or blue tac. After washing the car normally, you wet the panels and then wipe this stuff around like you would a sponge. It picks up the tiny bits of dirt and grime that a sponge can't and it leaves it as smooth as a baby's bum.
Can't remember the name (will try to find out and re-post) but it cost about $40.
