Sounds to me like you want to try using an all in one (AIO) polish after a a good decon using an iron fallout remover such as Bilthamber a Korrosol. By hand your looking at using something like Autofiness tripple or Bilthamber Cleanser polish. Microfibre pad for application helps with the bite required. Autoglym super resin is also good but less abrasive.

Thanks, I have some AG Super Resin lying about, might give that a go or i like the looks of Autoglym Coat It or Done and Dusted Sio2. But I know really I need to invest in a DA polisher, well maybe Santa Claus will be good to me this year

You could try Angelwax perfect polish, I have had great results on a black Ford Fiesta. I use the Autofinesse puck with the microfibre Pad to apply it. Used Angelwax QED as a gloss enhancer, trying out Wowo's QD at the moment which is giving even better results.

Been stopped and questioned a few times at work as to how is the car so reflective and glossy

Or non diminishing abrasive stuff like Megs Ultimate Compound / Polish if by hand.

But those will cost you nearly 25 quid and the Argos DA polisher is only 40 quid.

As others have said:

Your paint will have swirl and scratches. To improve gloss, you either need to remove them by abrasive polishing, fill the scratches to mask them of a combination of both.

So

Abrasive polish and correct entirely
or
Glaze with abrasive qualities (e.g. SRP or Bilt Hamer cleanser polish)
or
Glaze (e.g lime prime light, Prima Amigo)

You'll honestly not go far wrong with SRP by hand and then a couple of layers of wax

Couple of options from me;

Chemical Guys EZ Crème Glaze and topped off with a nice wax.

Autoglym, SRP followed by either a Wax or two hits of EGP always gives really good results too, additionally if done correctly you can get really good longevity out of this combo.

As Dan and John-R said, SRP is great for hiding a multitude of sins if you don't have a machine polisher. Needs to be well sealed/waxed though. I have also had good results with EZ Glaze.

It's more effort hand polishing but it can be done and these make the job a lot easier...

... and usually I just use the orange so you could buy that on its own if you're short of cash.
