What scholl pads??! So confused

Hi guys I've got a DA and my Scholl S20 ready to go to hopefully get rid of some heavy swirls and scratches on my metallic black Audi S5, but I'm so confused about what pads I should use and how many of each I should buy?

I've heard S20 is good for a one stage paint correction....but not sure what pads to use?

Can any of you guys advise or point me to some really useful information?

Thanks

The purple Spider polishing pad is best for a one step. If you've heavy swirls though on an Audi which usually have hard paint, a one step like S20 is unlikely to remove them all. That would take a two stage approach with S3 & S40 but S20 is great stuff.

Have a read of this might help. If you read the 'how to use' tab gives a good guide for what pads and when including heavy correction on hard paint.
