New car, paint cleaning, polishing and sealing

Hi guys,

I have a new white car with no noticeable defects or swirls. After the last and only wash, I applied Wurth car polish with PTFE (by hand), which gives a glossy finish to it.

I would like to take this to the next level by going for a Fusso99 12 month sealant or Angelwax TI22 but first I need to prep the car for it.

Pre-wash and wash: Gtech W5 and Dodo Juice born to be Mild

Clay bar + lubricator for polish prep

Polish: not sure what I should use. I am thinking about Car Pro Essence with very soft DA pads to polish the car and remove the Wurth polish to prepare a nice and clean surface for the Fusso/Angelwax. It seems to me a bit too strong so I was thinking about something lighter like Dodo Lime Prime lite with no abrasives or some similar paint cleaner. I would use a DA polisher to do the work.

What do you suggest?

I would suggest just more than a clay for decon.
White will show up everything so a good fallout remover, tar remover and then clay is where you need the be thinking IMO.

Essence is a fantastic product, and depending on the pad used would not be too much at all.
On softer paints use a finishing pad, on harder paint you can step it up.
It'll look glossy beast with essence followed by Fusso

What is the car?

Audi A3 Ice White. Might the Dodo Supernatural Micro Prime be an option as well? What pad would you suggest (black=softest pad/no bite, orange=medium bite, etc)?

On nice German paint which is generally hard I would suggest that you go with the essence
It'll take it easily, you'll take barely anything off in the way of clearcoat and you'll get a stunning finish.

If we're talking CG Hex pads then I'd suggest a selection really.
Black won't do anything really, more for finishing that trying to do any sort of correction.

White, green and orange will have more cut to them
Always work least aggressive and work up if needed.

Edit:
Defo use some fallout remover and tar remover first though!
Even seemingly clean white cars will still carry loads of contamination!
