is it enough a 100ml bottle for an BMW X5 (E53 chasis) by hand?

I used under 100ml of P1 by hand on a sapphire black X3 and it was swirl heaven before I started and again just under that for an 09 plate black Ford Galaxy that had 180,000miles on the clock and had been and was only ever cleaned in a drive thru car wash. You don't need much P1 on the pad (too much will clog the pad and create a lot of dust by the time your a third of the way done). A little 'spritze' of water does the trick if you need to keep working a small area (not to much, in fact very little is needed by hand).

Its harder going but worth it. Break it down into panels (don't start thinking about how many panels you've done and how many you've got left as you'll lose momentum).
