Start with the least harsh pad and polish combination first, only then can you tell how soft or hard the paint is. Presumably you have panel wipe or similar, light source etc?

s3 would be fine but it depends on what you want to remove

You just might need medium polish like S20 which is used mostly for a single stage ENHANCEMENT.

What pads do you have to use with S3 xxl? Plus what polishing machine are you using but as above always start of with a test spot with the least aggressive pad and polish
