I've polished many times.

Yeah I didn't word it too well. I meant I've never done both together. Always just done 2/3 costs of SRP.

If you've used SRP before then AG EGP over the top of that is really nice too.

My process is normally megs 205 on a DA polisher, followed by Blackhole, followed by a nice wax. Gives a really deep black. SRP would do the job by hand, and contains lots of filers anyway.
If it's got breasts or wheels - it's going to give you trouble

I only use about an inch of snowfoam and add a bit of shampoo to the bottle as well, then fill with water.

SRP gives quite good results but I like 3M ultrafina. Easier than SRP by hand or machine. It breaks down really nicely with a DA. The first coat of it on the 1er was easily visible and it made the paint slick to the touch as well - quite impressive for brand new paint.

Using bilt hamber double speed wax at the moment. £15 with an applicator and buffing microfiber you can't go wrong.
