Hard paints : Zephir + Diamond OR UHS??

Hi

I recently bought a Rupes LHR 15 ES standard kit which had only the quarz gloss and keramik gloss polish and pads in it..

I have to work on a Black mercedes benz with a hard paint next week.

The car needs some serious correction.It has tons of swirls and few mild scratches.

So which pad and polish combo will give a better correction and a better final gloss??

1.Rupes Zephir Gloss on Rupes blue foam/mf pads followed by finishing with Rupes Diamond gloss on Rupes white foam pads?

2.Rupes UHS as a single step?


In general

Which one has better correction ability : Rupes UHS or Rupes Zephir??

Is the final glossy look provided by UHS is as glossy as the finish provided by Rupes Diamond Gloss??



Please do help me experts.

TIA

First you need to do a test spot , thought myself on my Audi A5 I need at least UHS but a yellow mircofiber pad and Zafhir polish worked spot on !
On my mums car I used the UHS system but her car was in a really bad state , worked amazingly well sure a two step would have been better but was enough that most people thought the car was new !
Just because it's a Mercedes wouldn't be sure it's extra hard paint, went wrong so many times always thought I need more than I needed at the end !
