    Cool M205 Ultra Finishing Polish/W9207

    If I applied M205 with the soft finishing pad W9207, is any cut would be introduced to the paint or just high gloss clean looking.

    Very little cut/cleaning ability, certainly more on the polish side.

    can I say it will remove about 5000 grit marks, since I imagine M205 with W8207 will remove about 2500 grit. That is correct or I'm wrong!

    I wouldn't want to make a prediction like that... the paint alone is a major variable.

    In general, #205+8207 removing 2500 grit sounds a bit optimistic...

    If need be stup up to M105 on W8207 and it should knock out the sanding marks. It also depends on what tool you are using.

    Theoretical sanding grits aside, what are you actually looking to accomplish, what are you working on?

    I'm working on black BMW-5 series 2008 (which I think it's soft paint)!. The goals are:
    1- Get rid off very minor swirls (you can say they are not noticed)
    2- Add gloss and show the beauty of the black color.

    The steps I would like to follow and seeking advice are:
    1- Clean and wash
    2-M205/w9207 to avoid cutting as possible
    2- M7/W9207 (this is a question for me; may its redundant!)
    3- Gold class liquid/W9207 (to darken the paint)
    4- Ultimate wax liquid/w9207 ( for protection)

    What makes you say the paint on your 5 is soft? Have you actually done any work on it before? We see BMW paint all over the map, from very soft to insanely hard, so until you start working on it you really don't know for sure. Take a look at this thread to see what can happen when a paint doesn't respond the way you think it will.

    It's great that you have a plan, but like we said, until you actually start working on a car you don't know how the paint will respond so you don't know if your plan is actually the right one for the car. If you rely too heavily on a plan up front, you can get frustrated when it ends up be insufficient for the task. So, with what you've outlined, there's nothing really wrong with your steps but we can't say for sure if it's the right process or not. It is quite mild, that much we can say for sure. Your suspicion that M7 is redundant following M205 is correct; you probably don't need to do that since M205 will do wonders for the gloss and clarity of the paint on its own - it's great stuff! Also, we'd probably reverse your steps 3 & 4, applying the Gold Class on top of the Ultimate Wax if you're going to do both (but you don't need both).

    Hi Mike,
    The reason I said it soft paint (from my perspective), it was very easy you induce minor swirls when you buffing the car, for example, during wash or buffing wax. Of course you can disagree with me and I like to know your inputs and advice to what I said. Secondly, I agree with you my plan is quite mild not aggressive at all. Third, the reason I was palning to apply Gold Class liquid and top it with Ultimate liquid wax is to add darken and gloss to the paint. Please advice and thanks much.

    If you're talking about gold class carnuba wax then that would be applied as a last step.
