It's a meguiars dispenser bottle with the label ripped off from the Sonax 1L bottle. 1L bottle way too cumbersome for me esp when there are more than a few.

I was using a green sonax pad.

I've found I've had to use their cutmax polish and red pad to get any real cut on my BMW paint.
The cut of this polish is a bit shy of the M205, so don't expect much cutting from it even on medium paint let alone BMW hard paint. Good for minor swirls and ridding of post compouding haze though.

I've had some amazing results with this on quite hard paint

When paired with the right pad it corrects well

What pads were you using to get good cut?

In the end I did all my cutting with cut max and hexlogic yellow and orange pads, then moved to 04-06 with the sonax green foam pad which brought a lovely shine up.

On rock hard vw paint, I used a hex orange and then worked it quite alot to refine down and it worked a treat

Panel wiped after and had a thorough inspection and it was nicely refined

So would hex orange and 04-06 be a bit aggressive for BMW paint correcting some buffer trails (left by the main dealer) and light swirls?

I have Hex orange and 04-06 I bought for an old car but never used.

I'd probably say it's about right given how hard BMW paint usually is

Obv test before you go all out and see if it works or if its too aggressive and you need to step down the pad
