i just compound at the beginning. then when after removed swirls, watermarks, RIDS, i just use BD as maintenance.
with the correct wash methods, drying methods, swirls, etc still comes back but not for a very very long time.

i cant really answer ur question on BD with LC orange. although I have them, havent had the need to do it. if i do, i most probably use my BoHai.

Just like you I am more into maintenance then correcting...... smile_tongue.gif

The reason for me asking is that I use LC orange pad on RB is safer to use for cutting albeit slower with more passes compared with 4-ply purple wool. But the RB is 'pinjam' only...still in the same dilemma whether to get a RB or DA smile_blackeye.gif smile_question.gif

get a DA.

i primarily use RB for compounding or heavy polishing. which is rare for my cars.

on your car (passat cc) i think should be rare that you would want to do cutting/compounding.

Thanks for the advice bro... smile_thumbup.gif

Actually, I prefer a RB but find it cumbersome with its weight smile_blackeye.gif dry.gif whereas a DA...well, never tried it before * tongue.gif * but a lot ppl say damn good but weakness - vibration. blink.gif

well to me the vibration is not that bad. the ROB vibrates more.

1) go to reputable detailer to get rid of all defect. ( once a year )
2) use DA or RB to do maintainence. ( once per month ). smile_approve.gif

Eh? Typo le bro ROB not RB. Thanz for the correction.
Once use the RB, you will keep it some where until cob webs also got de. Better get a ROB/DA, can play with it every month
