I don't need to use anything stronger than Menzerna SIP to correct anything and most of the time I can get out a lot of stuff just using Prime Strong on a DA.
Ya, BMW paint is...well, funny. JB is hilariously soft on the surface, but it can be difficult to correct when you have deep marring. JB really isn't indicative of other BMW paint, unfortunately; it's a nightmare all on it's lonesome.
Imola is normally on the average to harder than average side of things, especially if you're doing deeper correction.
