    look forward to seeing it.

    The very best way is with a rotary polisher, you can have some effect by hand but it's hard work!

    seeing as it's an '06 you'd HOPE that the swirl marks are minimal.

    try some Autoglym Super Resin Polish by hand, work it in thoroughly with a foam applicator - it'll 'fill' the swirls more than remove them, but it'll still look good.

    you really need a porter cable or as duncan said, a rotary to remove the swirls completely.

    really nice. pokey till 4800 then it really sings from 4800 to 6600, seems to slip and torque steer quite a bit in 2nd gear coming off roundabouts etc but its really fun to drive too, nice tall gears too, timed a 0-60 in 9 secs using the onboard comp.
