Who knows of a UK supplier of Chinese DA polishing pads ?

This thread was originally entitled "Who knows of a UK supplier of DA polishing pads at Chinese prices ?"

It looks like I'm unable to amend the thread title within the main directory.


However, when I created this thread, I was unaware it's possible to buy 3 Chinese polishing pads, from China, for as little as £2:39 delivered (according to a forum member).

What I was really looking for; was a UK supplier of non branded polishing pads at more affordable prices, without an estimated delivery time of 4-6 weeks; and thanks to a link provided by CharliesTTS, this was achieved:
https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Set-of-5x-6...anner=1&_rdt=1

Which were ordered on the Sunday and received within two days (Tuesday morning).


The following is a review by Forensic Detailing, which convinced me to try the Chinese polishing pads and although the pads I purchased share the Hex Logic name and pattern, they were not purchased from the supplier mentioned within the review but from the eBay link above.



Original Post:
As subject title says; does anyone know of a UK supplier of these cheap Chinese polishing pads and backing plates, who deliver within 3-5 days ?

All those listed on eBay are from Shanghia with an estimated delivery time of 4 to 6 weeks; I don't want to wait that long for items to arrive.

Don't know, but you could try Scholl ecofix pads from elite car care. Genuine german quality pads and very cheap.

I'd like to eat at a Micheline star restaurant but for McDonald's prices.
Point is the cheap Chinese pads come from China and that means waiting. If you want pads quick then pay a premium to someone willing to buy in and store stock in this country. Can't have things both ways mate.

And why not......no harm in asking; just because one person isn't aware of such a stockist, doesn't necessarily mean such a stockist doesn't exist; hence my question.

I'm not expecting Michelin Star polishing pads at McDonald prices but Chinese polishing pads at reasonable prices and available in the UK.


ENEP....... Thanks for your recommendation

Yeah, I had look on Amazon but found it all too easy to unwittingly buy from Chinese companies with long delivery times.
Although, I've just bought a 5" Silverline backing pad for £4.17 with free next day delivery via a Amazon Prime free trial.
