I think there is a video on the Forensic Detailing YouTube channel on finishing polishes that covers both these products.

Koch Chemie M2.01 is a lovely polish, with quite a broad range too.

Here's a quick 50/50 on hard Audi paint. Only 1 set using a Lake Country CCS Orange pad on the trusty old Flex 3401. PTG readings are in the same region, so I'd be lucky to have removed a micron or two.

Was going to say the same thing about M2-01 it's very good all round finishing polish that works great on hard clear coats and is easier to remove than S40.M2 just has the edge on S40 for cut wise depending on what pad you use. S40 is a fantastic finishing polish on darker colours. It has a nice long working time if you use a soft or polishing pad but hasn't got the cut as M2-01 has.

I've used and got both in my kit but if i was going to reach for my fave finisher it would be M2 every time

Nothing against s40 it is fantastic, but with M2's cut and gloss you can rely on it for better results more of the time

S40 is not a finishing polish its a Jewling polish,and as such it can bring the paint gloss/depth to another level,thats after a good correction stage.
If youre looking for some correction also just use S40 with scholls orange pad on a rotary.

Many a times I've gone from a MF cutting pad and compound to S40 and it's removed the haze from the MF pad and compound so it's not just a Jewling polish as you say, it has enough abrasive to remove any correction haze don't forget different paints react to different polishes so using S40 on soft paint as a finishing polish works

Its also a matter of what type of polisher youre using but i agree partly,on some paints& pads combo it will perform as a Jewling polish.
