But always be careful when polishing as you are removing small amounts of clear coat every time you do it. If you do it too often and/or aren't careful, you'll burn through the clear and permanently damage your paint.
Yeah, I hear you. Removing microns at a time should be okay. A heavy polish once a year and a finish polish every now and then should be fine. This darn BMW clear coat is so crappy that I just can't get away from polishing every time I clay. On my S2000, I can usually use a very mild polish after a clay bar with no issues.
