AS Evo range help

Hi guys,

Iíve pretty much run out of 3m fastcut and refina. Iím contemplating getting the Evo 1 and 3 from AS. I understand that 3 is more aggressive than 1. I only detail my car and occasionally my wifeís and help with friends cars. I generally donít have a lot of time to complete details and need to be able to complete all processes in 12-14 hrs. My machine is an el cheapo rotary which doesnít maintain speed with pressure but I have got used to it and Iím now able to produce respectable results with the 3m polishes.

My current car is a 2010 red Mercedes E350 coupe which has considerable swirling after I had to clay aggressively to remove white overspray which got on the car while at a local garage for servicing. Iím not after a perfect finish as I do considerable mileage on less than perfect country roads and would be chasing a losing battle. What I do want is a better finish than a quick wax.

Ok my questions are:
1) Are AS Evo 3 & 1 diminishing polishes?
2) can Evo 3 finish down to a respectable finish without the need for refining? Ie a single step polish.
3) As I only want to refresh my paint can I get away with just Evo 1?
4) what are peopleís recommendations to get decent results out of these products?

Thanks

Jonny

Why not just apply a filler glaze or even better, Carpro Essence. This will give some slight cut depending on what pad you choose and will slightly fill any fine swirls and give you outstanding gloss plus the added benefit of some good protection.

I had both evo 1 and 3 but only tried 3. Found it extremely dusty and sold them both on.

Really liked evo 1 finished very well , evo 3 could not get on with at all!! I here in the new year AS are bringing a new range out?? As for now I'd consider looking at something other than evo 3 but I'm sure there's others that love it but for me a no no

Iíve looked at carpro essence before, how does it compare to the likes of ag srp? I find srp doesnít last also it is not as dirt repellent as a polished car. I also have megs ultimate compound which I havenít used. Is this any good?

SRP is different from Megs UC, SRP does not have any cutting ability is more of a glaze. UC is a proper cutting compound

You could also try Britemax virtue. You will get the following benefits
little to no dusting
good cut depending on pad (in testing removed 2000 grit sanding marks)
good filling abilities
sio2 protection great beading
depending on conditions 1 hour curing time, so if time is crucial to you this could be a bonus to you.
oh and for 16oz its retailing for £32.95 and you dont need to use a lot of product as a little goes a long way.
