Phil,

I forgot to ask, can I use BOTH the Einszett Polish and the Swissvax Cleaner Fluid, in that order?

Thanks,
Carl

Correct if you need the paint polish then do that before the cleaner fluid.

I can sometimes eat up a pad on one car since the car is so bad and the product is so aggressive.

I can also have a pad for 3 years (black/blue/red) when you are at lower speeds and applying wax or glazes.

So I can't really give you a good answer on this one it really varies for different users.

I ask because im worried about over doing it and maybe burning and not enough and not completely removing the swirls.
Another question is, I have seen at bmw dealership that after washing, while its still wet, the detailers would spray gloss enhancer all over the entire car, and dry the car off. Do you think this is a good idea?

spraying detail spray before drying is a good thing to do it adds gloss to the car while you are drying off.

I do this when I'm maintaining a car/just washing it.

Passes, well it all depends what you are doing. I don't count passes I just make sure the panel doesn't get hot and I keep moving the machine around at a nice pace.

If you need to check after 2-4 passes.

thanks Phil,
swissvax really helped me out this weekend. I had a is350 that was 6 months old. The dealership previously waxed the car ,but there was tons of dried up wax EVERYWHERE. After a real good wash it was still there, once i applied the cleaner fluid it complete took off all the wax residual. It was a life saver. Its a real great product. The wax gave the car tons of depth.
