I have been out of the detailing game for awhile until recently, and I am glad I chose the Auto Finesse + Meguiar's D300 route.

Here's what I ended up with with the D300 + AF Tripple + AF Tough Coat + AF Desire!

This shot shows the depth and clarity out of my 11 year old Jet Black E46 M3!


This is just a shameless plug of the desirable AF Desire wax, haha


I'll be honest, the paint isn't 100% corrected. There are still some deeper etchings and scratches that I'm sure a more abrasive compound can remove. But for the most part, my paint looks pretty darn good thanks to the advice and help of Martin_D of Auto Finesse!

I think the biggest thing you have to decide is how "damaged" your paint is and how much clear coat you're willing to take off from polishing.
