soft I would say. But I varies from year of manufacture and colour of paint . Have a look on the polished bliss website there is a rough guide about hardness of paint and a chart http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...uld-i-use.html I think they say its intermediate paint hardness .

I had a 172 in monaco blue last year.
Merenza 203 on a lake country constant pressure pad worked perfect on it for me. Was swirled to buggery though!

Just goes to show same company different paints so that's why we say don't take anything for granted,treat each car as an Individual.

Renault sport models are sprayed separately to standards models and have typically been harder than the standard models. My liquid yellow was very hard, but most I'd suggest we're medium to hard

Same here with the Laguna Coupé. I think it depends which factory built the
car. The Laguna III lines were brand new.
