Okay guys I have just bought mequires, #2 and #3. I skipped the #1 as it says it is for real rubbed in road gunk.

I wash my car in a touchless drivethrough car wash almost every day.

There is really no real swirl marks in it.

It is shiny black.

Is this a good choice to do, #2 then 3?

I assume you bought the maroon bottles. If that's correct, then you're on the right track. However, I would still get number 1 and use it maybe 1 or 2 times a year. I would also suggest that once this stuff is used up, get the stuff in tan bottles(Mirror Glaze). Get #7, #9 and Gold Class wax. This should make the paint look deep enough to swim in!

If your car has no deep swirl marks and is in generally good condition, the #2 and #3 are a bit extreme. Get the "Mirror Glaze" (tan bottles) #9 Swirl Remover, and #7 Polish. Then use either some Mirror Glaze (tan bottle again) #26 Wax or some Meguiar's Gold Class liquid wax. The Gold class will look a little bit better on the painted panels, but it will leave white gunk on trim and stuff. The #26 will look 97% as good on the paint, and be usable on all panels/plastic/trim/etc. As always, use ONLY 100% cotton (including the threads) applicators, terrycloth, or diaper-cloth on the finish to avoid swirls. Skip the #2 and #3 as they are too aggressive for a car so new and in as good a condition. If you have any other questions or run into any problems post back and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Hope this helps...Lee
