I've been reading where the jet black is soft. Would using the Super Intensive Polish with an orange pad and the Super Finish with a white pad be too aggressive? Its been a few years since I've done this and it was last on an Atlanta Blue Z with no problems. This is my first time working on this car and it doesn't look like its ever been worked on before. Thanks again!

You can use the SI1500 on your paint, but I'd probably go down in the pads just a little bit. For the Jet Black BMW paint I would recommend the green/pink pads with the SI1500, follow that up with the SF4000 and a black pad. This combo would be less likely to cause hazing and leave the finish with more shine! As always when testing new combos do them on a small section first to ensure you are satisfied before doing the whole vehicle.

For the Flex start off polishing around speed 3 - 4 and move up only if needed. Again test the speeds on one area and ensure you like the results. Good luck and thank you for the purchase!
