I have found a great product Metal Armor that I saw on Spike TV. I have found a system that works. I bought the hand polish system from metalarmor.net. Its basically a three part system polish and wax/seal system for the paint and wheels it also comes with all aplication sponges and detail cloths. It has detailed application instructions so you can not screw up but I have a black M3 (no swirl marks or haze) and the paint looks better than when I bought it. I waxed and polished more than a month ago and out east with our salt I just being rinsing it with water and it looks greats. I have tried Zymol and Meguiars with limited success.

Has anybody else used this stuff?

a nice terry cloth is a good way to go, but you could do a lot worse than an old t-shirt - the material is great for applying polish. Personally I use lint-free polishing cloths I buy in packs of 5 from my local Auto store. It's £5 for 5 cloths, but you cut em in half and you get 10 good-sized cloths. I'm not a fan of these pads - I rate Meguiars prodcuts highly but found the pads to be too damn finnicky; I couldn't grip them comfortably and it took too long to do the car.

I respectfully disagree, the clear coat on your car is softer than the lenses on an expensive set of sun glasses, and they provide you with a synthic cloth for cleaning them. I would only use a sythetic micro-fiber cloth on my car.
