    Polishing a car - is it bad if....

    You do it alot? say once a month? People have told me using polish isnt good for your car if you use it alot? They say twice a year?

    i have only polished my GSi 2 times since Jan. I used to polish my old corsa everyweek, looked so shiney, and never had any problems with that.

    just a pic to show how shiney it was

    i've just brought some meg's 3 stage polish and wax as i'm planning to keep the car looking nice and clean now it has the kit on it. i'm planning on polishing a minimum once a month, i don't think it will damage the paint if you polish it a lot.

    How much better is NXT tec wax over AG Resin then? I've used AG resin for ages and those that use NXT after using AG say there is a really noticable difference and then go on to say AG is crap in comparison.

    doesnt leave the white residue and dust everywhere. much easier to apply and take off. Results are better if the preperation before hand has been done.
    And best of all it smells nice. so nice infact Benn eats it.

    Benn eats anything though.

    Does it leave less swirls than AG resin?

    Better prep as in using a claybar before hand? Or do you need to use something else after the claybar?
