I'm on the verge of getting a black 2013 Megane Knight edition.

I'm used to mostly polishing BMW's - am I going to need to take it more easy with the DA?
Looks like the previous owner had a £50 valet including t-cut to shine 'er up

You'll not know till you do a test spot assuming you are going to use a polishing machine

Do you think it's safe to start with Menzerna final finish and work back from there if needed?

Has anyone else noticed how 'good' Renault Paint looks recently?

As I am sure many of us do i take a real interest in car paint quality when out and about (even walking through Tesco car park ) and over the last couple of years Renaults seem to have improved dramatically, they appear to have changed either their paint or lacquer. I am sure that looking closely would show as many swirls as ever but from a distance top marks from me.

The lines of the new Clio no doubt help but compared to other Makes they look significantly glossier.

I think Renault's look good recently. Seem to have really got their act together again after some funny years.

Regarding the paint though, I had 2 mk1 clio's in the 90's, a metallic black RT and 449 sport blue 16v
Both looked great.

I see your on the verge of getting a black car it depends on how bad the damage is bud. You could start off with 3500 on a polishing pad, but what you have described it ain't going to do much just improve the gloss level.

What pads and polish besides 3500/3800 have you, and if you put a picture up that will help a lot. Remember now that you probably won't be working on hard paint like you did in the past
