Would be something I would love to learn to do.

This has the makings of a brilliant informative and stunning thread. Thanks for posting, look forward to the rest to come over the next few days.

And finally, that M3 made me make a strange noise when I saw it, I just absolutely love that colour. Up there with Renault Liquid Gold but that BMW blue is rare.
Thank you, I hope it's informative and helpful to some. I have a LOT of pictures, but I'm on a 3G Dongle, and it's dire (one bar of signal), so I'll do a full write up on the session, when I get back home to blissful 50MB Virgin.

I think Kelly's threads do a superb job of showing the difference that can be achieved, and I totally agree with you that the difference is vast, especially on some newer German cars particularly BMW's! Unfortunately, done properly, I'd imagine it'd take the best part of a week to do a car fully, for a single person, which is a monster effort. I think it'll be useful for me personally as I see a few customers who have had a poor respray, so hopefully can offer support getting the best out of any affected panels.

The removal rate of Megs MF system vs. Rotary and Wool was the biggest eye opener of the day for me...
