if you are going for a all out concours look, i use auto glym, they do a polish that is second to none! but you pay for what you get (£60 for a bottle enough to do my car twice!) but it comes down to taste.
if you drive your car every day(like i do now :nugget: ) a cheeper polish such as MER, it's available from halfords, once you've cleaned your car, just quickly chammis your car, and apply over the damp panels, once it has turned a milky colour and gone tacky, wipe off with a clean dry cloth, don't do the usual"take off in a circular pattern" this leaves swirls it the paint and looks poo when the sun shines on it!
any polish's you would like others to know about, feel free to post

I like the easy spray on waxes that you just spray on, buff off! like AutoGlym show shine, Easy Shiny!
I've used TurtleWax Advanced ClearVue Wax and hated it. It's awkward to use because it says you need to apply with a dry cloth, rub off with a damp cloth then wipe over with a dry cloth. It left wierd sort of oxidised marks on my red paint too carp imo

The polish we use at work is by a company called "Farecla" and I use a air powered polisher. When I polished at work it consisted of 3 steps.... first I use a cut polish (G3 is the name of it) with a harder polish pad, second I replace the polish pad with a soft one and polish it with the swirl remover polish (called G10) after that i would by hand apply a wax to the panel called permashine. This whole process leaves the panel looking and beading like a new paint job.

In fact, my whole boot is full of Car polishing products - I swear the polish is the only thing holding the car together these days!

I keep it in my car on occasions like L2B when you just want something quick and easy but still gives a nice shine!
I've just done my car with it in this pic!
