Good replacement for Megs 3" MF cutting disc

Evening guys. I'm having a bit of a conundrum trying to find a good replacement mf pad for the Bigfoot mini, to work along side the mk2 15 with the megs 5" cutting disc.

I have been looking at the flexipads over at polishedbliss.

http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...scs-cat10.html

Has anybody tried these or tried any others that work well?

Also I have been doing a lot of BMWs just lately. Some of which I struggle even with S3 XL and megs cutting disc. I don't have a rotary so wondered if there is anything else I can step up to in terms of pad/polish with a Bigfoot 15??

Any advice would be grand.
Many thanks.

Lake country mf pad is said to have more cut than Meg's mf, unfortunately, can not verify it personally.

I have used http://flexipads.com/product/mgcd3/?search=MGCD3 and http://flexipads.com/product/mgcd5/ with the Menzerna 400 on German hard paint with good results.

It might be worth sending Chongo a PM, I know he has been using the mf pads from in2detailing recently and really rates them.

Been using these pads for a while with D300 and they are fantastic with the 75mini, the only problem I had was that the foam wasn't lasting to long as they started to come away from the edges, and yes I didn't use to much pressure and the speed was always around speed 2 I did send send some pictures to them and I was refunded, but very good with the D300 from Meguairs.

It's the new orange foam and black MF ones am talking about

Thanks both.
I've tried the Buff & Shine from I2D, they are pretty damn awesome but just slightly lack the cutting power of a megs but a great one stepper with light to medium defects on harder paints.

I'd like to try the lake country but can't seem to find them anywhere online. I'm also tempted by the Carpro MF's.

Thanks Chongo. I'll order some of these with D300 then. Not to bothered about them deteriorating tbh... asking as they help with digging the swirls out of the hard stuff.

Elite car care https://www.elitecarcare.co.uk/produ...e-cutting-pad/ Which is listed as 3.5 "5.5" 6.5 "but I think they are really 3 1/4" and so on.

Ok second on that ball
