BH Cleanser Polish or Britemax Black Max?

Well my mind is doing overtime thinking about using the waxes I've bought over the last month or so!
So, for next spring/summer, would you recommend BH Cleanser polish or Britemax Black Max or something else to clean, fill and prepare the white paint?
Please bear in mind I hand polish only, I only want to fill or correct very minor swirling, I want the wax to bond well (I do know that wax bonds best to bare paint) and want something easy to use.
I used AG SRP this year which was good and I'm happy with it - but being a newbie I've not used anything else to compare it to.
Read reviews and the above 2 products seem to be rated highly.
I'm already thinking for next winter to cleanse the paint properly with BH Cleanser fluid or something like Serious Performance Paint Cleanser or OW Lustrate or similar so I get the most durability from a wax for the winter.
Any help, suggestions or guidance is gratefully accepted as there are so many choices out there
Cheers
Phil

I have both and if you are only hand polishing I suggest you go with Cleanser polish. It works well this way.
Blackmax is better but only if you use it by machine. That way it really utilizes those abrassives and finishes perfectly. It cant do the same by hand.

I have both as well but I use by DA

Cleanser polish really does lift dirt off the panels extremely well,but not much of a finish imo

Blackmax leaves a brilliant glossy finish.

By hand cleanser polish. By machine Blackmax. Black max is actually surprisingly effective via machine at correcting light scratches and creating a wonderful finish.

Do I need to tape plastics off like when using SRP due to white residue left?

Certainly when using SRP, I've never found CP to be a problem with marking black trim.

I've got both CP and BM, I'll have to give BM a go via machine next time (only used by hand up to now).

A lot can depend on the condition of the paint. If it's dull, oxidised or not looked after I'd choose cleanser polish as it's better at chemically cleaning.

If the paints in good condition and you just want to remove old waxes and prepare a base for new, I'd opt for blackmax.

Hi Dave,
the car is only 18 months old and the paint is in good condition. Only a few minor swirl marks - so I wanted to prep the paint as best I can by hand, to ensure the ton of wax I've bought over last couple of months will have a good bond.
Like I said, any advice or help is like gold dust to me so cheers to everyone
Cheers
Phil

Have you considered a Das 6 pro?

You can pick them up fairly cheap nowadays.
