    this explains a lot. i have a customer with a 740i, and i have absolutely hated her paint. she has a few scratches that are just to the point where i did throw in the towel and simply explained to her a repaint type correction may be needed. very similar to this story, and of course black in color. i did use foam wool on rotary even, and it honestly didnt even look all too touched until i waxed.

    I had one a few weeks ago, 98 M3, and was having a hard time getting the paint to respond. Mike knows I am not a rotary guy, D/A only for me. Test spots and different products and different pads ( I even called the 800 number trying to be not recognized and Nick guessed who I was right off the bat (failure on my part ). Went through a reality check with Nick. What got me over the hump was some new cutting pads. I ended up tossing my older pads and life was good again. Not to say I'm glad you had a tough time or anything, But I sure feel better now that a pro has confessed that they sometimes have a hard time also. LOL TNOG is coming soon!!!!!!

    Reading this thread again, and great write-up! I have the same problem of hard paint. On a test spot, I've done up to 12 passes with the PC DA at around 4 with MG Soft Buff 6.5" burgundy cutting pad, Ultimate Compound and/or ScratchX, to no avail. It's like I did nothing at all but remove the wax. Since my perma-swirls have built up to look like the starting shots above, I'll be trying M105 with the PC DA speed setting maxed out
