Just get a 250ml Sonax EX 04 06 and thank me later. It is a true one stepper at it's finest.

The photos in the first post are what I was able to do in my first ever go using a DA . From what I've since learnt from Rich at Polished Bliss, if I'd applied more product and worked it a bit longer, I would probably have been able to get to that state in one hit rather than two (and very probably got a better level of gloss due to the longer refining phase).

Either way, I think the ability of S20 to perform as a one step polish is not really under question, although it has its quirks like all products. What is an issue is how hard it can be to get the polish residue off after polishing.

Given I've already bought (1kg of!) the S20 I'm going to try to find a way to work with it, and by discussing it here, hopefully help anyone else who may have similar issues in the future. It's good practice to clean a panel after polishing to check the level of correction etc, especially if you're not very experienced, so given that I've already got the right products to do so, I may as well continue using them.

If you're starting from scratch and looking for a one-step compound / polish, then you might well want to look at Sonax first, since no-one is complaining about residue removal for EX 04-06, and the results would seem to be just as good as the S20.

For those in the thread who've decided to change to the Sonax product, please come back and let me know your experiences! It will save me asking you again if I decide I can't be doing with the S20

Green hex works great, orange if you need a bit more bite

Try it with a MF cutting pad if on hard paint, you be surprised how it finishes on a MF pad one tip, only apply a bit of down pressure and the last two passes just the weight of the machine

Got your answer about pads, I use it with ornage hex, white hex, green it does the job with each one it just depends how much cut is needed. Never tried it with microfiber pads though, that gave me an idea

Do you ever wish once you have made made a post, then made a purchase, you shouldn't revisit the forum?!

Just ordered the S20 on Monday and now reading this. That said a couple of threads I have seen with good reviews of the S20 will hopefully mean I haven't messed up, or is it really worth trying to get it exchanged for the Sonax? (BMW Sapphire Black paint)
