Great cutting ability a lot of dusting from the compound Has a lot of haze so IPA it and follow up with a good polish m205 is ok it's rival is menzerna fg 400 has more gloss and less dust but mequiars does the job use a microfiber cutting pad for much better results

It works better than expected; I did not have big expectations about this , being only 9 USD and a Meguiar's product, but it is excellent. I had some deep scratches on my 335i bumper, all gone now! If you have a random orbital sander/polisher, it works great ( harder to do by hand ).

As a professional paint specialist I highly recommend the 105 compound to remove defects in the paint. It works well with the buffer and the orbital polisher. you will still need to finish with a good quality polish and the orbital to remove all the swirl marks.

Good stuff, requires a fair amount of initial pressure with an orbital, until it breaks down, then finishes nice.

This products works great. It will cut through those scartches and swirls and leave a great finish. Some hazing may occur on certain paints, so best to follow up with the M205, which I have yet to use but own.

One of the best compounds I have ever used. Pair it with the appropriate pad for the job, and it will produce great results. Very effective at removing swirls, and light to medium scratches, water spots and so on. While the product works extremely well with a rotary, you can get great results using a DA and an appropriate pad for what you need. Some other compounds aren't nearly as effective when used with a DA, but 105 is. Only issue is that it does tend to produce some dust if you apply to much product, and if you don't keep your pad clean. In fact, if you use a lot of product or don't clean your pad regularly, you'll probably have dust and splatter everywhere. That, honestly, I've found other compounds to act about the same way. A really great compound.

I was in a small sideswipe accident a while back, leaving white marks on my fender and black painted wheel. The guy had no insurance and the adjuster told me it was probably going to buff out very easy. I picked this stuff up and went to town with my pc. This did the job, and everyone thought I had the damaged area repainted.

Used this with my rotary and a LCC HT Orange pad to clean up the finish on my 09 Mustang, it had some swirls and some wet sanding marks that the bodyshop didn't buff all the way out. The Megs worked great, lots of working time and it finshed out beautifully.

Used this on a 2006 328 that had never been clayed, or waxed. The paint was getting a flat look to it and it had some visible scratches as well as spider swirls all over the car. The 105 did a great job of removing most of the unattended to damage before using Super Finish Polish SF 4000 (PO106FA)

I love it. Used it as a complete noob, and had no problems at all. Well, I may have slung the stuff all over my garage once or twice, but that was totally my lack of experience. After I got it under control, this stuff almost effortlessly corrected years of neglect from my '03 bmw's previous owner. Followed it up with some m205 and I was home free!

This stuff seems to work very, very well for paint correction. I paired it with a LC orange pad and PC on the horizontal surfaces of my car, which was had very limited swirls/hazing. It worked great, as I cannot see any remnants under natural sunlight or with a flashlight. I would recommend reading the entry in the detailing blog about how to properly prep the pad, etc. I think I flashed a lot of compound unnecessarily.

The real test will be this coming week on a heavily swirled MB CLK, on which I will use Surbuf pads. I suspect I will be able to greatly improve the look of the car.

Fantastic compound. As many of the other reviews state, M105 finishes down almost as well as a finer polish while accomplishing a tremendous amount of correction. Used it with a yellow pad and a wool pad depending on cut needed and was thrilled with both results. Used 3M fine finish to finish it off. I'll definitely be trying M205 next though.

Well I put away the wool pad and gave this stuff a try with the Surbuf pads and I am glad I did. I had a customer with some water damage on hood mixed with concrete. I hit it with some acid and went with the 105 and a Surbuf pad. The nice thing is that you can use it with the Porter Cable so you wont get sling all over the place like you do with the rotary. Use the load pad instructions and off you go. Took the water spots off and paint felt like butter. Vehicle was black, next step was the 205 meguiars. Used another Surbuf pad with the 205 to eliminate any swirls and/or holograms (even though I didnt see any). Paint looked even better, a wetness to it. Hit it next with the grape ezecreme then the wet diamond, nail polish I tell you. Paint was on a 1997 camry original paint. After I did the hood customer could not believe the water/cement stain was gone. And after seeing/feeling the paint he wants the entire car done. Its all about synergy folks.

Bought this to hit some water spot and bird dropping etching. Used with a pc DA and a green pad and it had a modest cutting rate which was good because it was my first go at machine polishing/correction. I will probably try the M105 with an orange pad next time to see if that allows the M105 to cut a bit more efficiently. It was remarkable how well it finished down to a smooth finish, but to get the gloss/depth I recommend following up with the M205.

Greg was nice enough to send me a bottle of this stuff, and i corrected my buddies lincoln navigator over the weekend and WOW, this cutting compound has great cutting ability, although it dusts a bit more than my liking, the ending finish is perfect, something i haven't achieved with similar CC's. i usually finish down with CG p40, maybe m205 is in my near future judging by how great of an experience i had with m105.

Well I used this product on my friends 2000 Toyota celica. It does looks better but I'm all the way pleased with results. The paint does have more shine and deeper gloss/refelctions but there are still some imperfections. I think a lot it has to do with my technique using a DA polisher. Im still new to the detailing scene. Didn't pick it up till this past summer. I know this product works I believe with experience and time I will get better results. I'm going to give it a try on my 07 civic and see what happens. I still highly recommend this product!!

I used the Meg105 in conjunction with an yellow pad and random orbital. This product works quickly and produces quite a bit of dust as most compounds do. It worked great for swirls and scratches. The most impressive thing about this compound is it's "finish down" capability. It finishes, well, like a finishing polish!!! I followed up with Optimum AIO sealant/polish on a white pad with great results.

Product worked great on deeper scratches on my Audi's hard paint that I didn't seem to be able to get with Wolgang Swirl Remover. It leaves a finish that only need minor correction but It does dust quite a bit.

As a car enthusiast who enjoys working on cars and wanted to go beyond that, this product is a must for anyone who wants their paint to look fresh again. I'm not a professional detailer and I recently bought this product and my first impression was, WOW THIS IS AWESOME. When used with the correct pad and speed setting, it will remove moderate to deep scratches with a nice finish, but be careful because this product will dust quick and that's exactly how you use this product.

Product worked AWESOME!! Purchased a used car and paint was in great shape. But the inner part of the door handle had lots of finger nail scratches. M105 took it right off with not problem! Followed it with some M205 and wax, and it was good as new! Highly recommend this stuff!

Incredible. Im not a pro detailer, but an enthusiast who does my 2 cars and friends cars often. The Megs line turned what was a 3 step polish job into 2 steps. Heck, for some of my friends trucks, we just did a 1 step polish job with M105 and it finished nice enough for them that we slapped a coat of sealant on it and called it a day.

I used to use the Menzerna line, but now Im a 105 convert. The 105 on the orange pad cuts pretty well and finished pretty nicely. Im planning on picking up a cyan pad with my next order and plan on using the M105 on a cyan pad followed by M205 on a white polish pad and calling it a day. Im still keeping the Menzerna PO85RD to use on a black pad on jet black cars, but for my wifes RAV4, friends trucks and camrys and silver Lexus, the M105/205 combo is a fantastic 2 step combo which gets out scuff marks and scratches and finishes fantastic!

M105 works GREAT, especially in conjunction with the M205 polish. Used my Porter Cable XP orbital polisher with small dabs of M105 on a yellow pad and polished the hazy/cloudy headlights on my wife's 2004 Acura MDX. Followed up with a blue pad and M205. Total time elapsed was about 20 minutes and the headlights look BRAND NEW. Used a blue pad with M205 to polish the rest of the vehicle, and it looks just great too. I'm thrilled with the M105/M205 products. It was very gratifying to get my wife's vehicle looking that good - especially since she bought me the Porter Cable XP for Father's Day!

As a newbie detailer, I used this on my 96 Honda with a Cyan Pad, cut very easily and finished great. Looked so good I almost didn't use the finishing polish! On my '05 BMW, though, it took additional passes with the Cyan Pad to remove the heavier scratches but still got the job done. Finished both cars with M205 with the white pad and looked amazing.

Overall it was easy to use even for a newbie like myself!

As a detailer, I frequently encounter badly damaged paints of all colors and hardness. My old standby, Meguiars Diamond Cut would require extra passes but leaves the surface hardly scarred. Is it possible that Ultra-Cut M105 can be more aggressive, but still leave the surface is similar fashion? Yes. You need to choose your pads correctly, as the foamed wool did leave mild hazing, but astonishing in it's level of cut. I recommend this to Pro Detailers for those jobs that are troubled.
