I have been detailing/repairing paint finishes in cars as a side business for over 20 years and this product is the best by far that I have ever used. M105 should be used with the understanding that M205 is to be used next. Anytime you compound you must always polish too. Then I recommend using Meg's 2.0 sealant. Make sure you use the appropriate foam pads when applying these products but once finished you will be shocked at the imperfections that these products will remove in your car's finish. Do not plan to do all 3 steps in the same day (unless your absolutely mad), to do it properly try and do this in a friends Garage or in your own over a few days. Once finished the car will look like a mirror! Also check around for pricing on this stuff often Amazon isn't the lowest.

Using the SMAT technology non-diminishing abrasives this is probably the best product to hit the market since polish was invented. The learning curve from beginning to experts using a Dual action polisher (like the G110) to grabbing the tried and true rotary is simply amazing. It lets everyone get perfect results. Very long work times just add to the overall quality of this product. If you detail for a living this product is an absolute must have in any detailers product list. This one isn't hype like so many products of the past. It actually works and works better than anything I've seen on the market in over 15 years of daily detailing.

This product works better than expected. I had a bunch of light scratches/bird dropping spots on the hood/trunk areas of my car. This stuff took it off with ease. I did use the meguiars da polisher on speed 4.5 using moderate downward pressure, 4-6 passes per section.

I will say this stuff wipes off really hard. Maybe it was drying too quick on me. I was out of the sun, early in the morning, temp around 80. I thought I used plenty of compound per section but maybe not. I had to use a wet cloth to help get some of it off. I was scared for a min since my car was white and I couldnt get this stuff off. Not to worry though, I followed up with meguiars 205, then meguiars m-0716 mirror glaze, and last with mothers synthetic liquid wax.

It does get easier to wipe off the liquids as you go. Even if you cannot get everything off or there are streaks from the meguiars products, follow it up with mothers synthetic liquid wax. I never used a wax that wiped off that easily and without streaks. Absolutely effortless when wiping off mothers syn wax.

So yea, the M105 is a bull to wipe off. Dont stress too much about it, get as much as you can and move on to the next step, you won't be disappointed. I recommend this product to anyone!

Also note, you will need the correct buffing pads for the liquids above, cutting, finishing, polishing. And if you plan on doing the entire process, wash car, clay car, m105, m205, m0716, then mothers, its going to take you minimum of 4 hours, and thats if you are really rushing. Better to space it out over 2 days unless you have someone helping you wipe the car down as your applying the different liquids.

The only thing that sucks about this product is that it almost costs $30. Luckily you can do a lot of automobiles with it. Either way, 5 stars for me.

I've always loved Meguiars products and I am quickly becoming accustomed to using there products exclusively throughout the automotive field. I used this product during the final colorsanding phases of a replacement fender job that I did on my own vehicle and absoloutely loved the results. Let it be known that you should still follow this up with M205 which is more of a final finishing polish that will take out anything this product leaves behind (which is minimal when done correctly). I give this product an excellent rating strictly because prior to using this product I used Turtle Wax brand polishing compound which was considerably more abrasive and left very hard to polish out swirls after its usage on a hood job. I finished the hood seperately and just wound up buffing the heck out of it with my buffer and Meguiars ultimate polishing compound which is also a good product but a little too fine in my opinion to take out wet sanding marks considerably. This product does the job quickly, cleanly, and probably most importantly allows for the least amount of time/work that you must do yourself. As with any job, especially in high in/out environments like a shop you will definitely want to make the most out of the time you have and this would be the product for you. Never again will I even consider turtle wax polishing compound in the final stages of color sanding. It's not worth the risk to have to reset which will be even more labor intensive, time consuming, and probably most importantly a much bigger hit in the wallet. For the average weekend warrior/beginner this is a great way to save yourself from making mistakes. Tips: I use this with the Meguiars 7000 ultra cutting foam (reddish) pad. I follow it up with the Meguiars 8000 (yellowish) foam pad and the meguiars m205. As with any body work I do I do a gentle had buff follow up with the 205 as well, (especially important for black cars). Results are outstanding as long as you have a little patience and TLC you won't go wrong. Keep your buffer steady, level and slow to moderate speed... You don't want the thing sanding, you want it buffing!

Having professionally used Meguiar's products for quite some time, I always felt their compounds were lacking.
Formerly, I used 3M compounds, then finished with Meguiar's.

No more!

M105 Ultra Cut Compound is as good as people say.

How does it work?

* quickly
* with low dust
* with wool or foam pads (rotary machine)
* nicely in spot applications by hand

It is a compound, so it will leave some marks that need to be refined, but it takes far less effort than compared to every effective compound I have used.

Since it finishes so well, it eliminates an entire step of finish refinement after compounding.
Think about the time saved when going around an entire vehicle one less time.

If you are on the fence about trying this product, give it a try. It is that good.
It saves your time and energy while producing great results.

Meg's has created a very nice compound with M105 Ultra Cut Compound. Unlike tradition compounds, M105 does not use diminishing abrasives so you do not have to work the product near as long as traditional compounds which will speed up the process of correcting swirling and other marring in the paint. M105 works very well with wool on a rotary polisher.

One of the biggest complaints of the original formula was that it "flashed" too quickly not giving the detailer enough time to work the product. The new formula allows for a longer working time but keep in mind, this product corrects paint quickly so you don't need to go over your work section too many times to get your desired result.

Meguiars just came out with a finishing polish companion for M105 called M205. I haven't tried it yet but have heard good things about it.

I found this product work as advertised, however it dried very quickly and was difficult to remove at times. I applied with Porter Cable polisher and it helps to mark your pad so you knows its spinning. I had better results with the M205 for swirl mark removal then the M105 and it was easier to apply and remove.

A great product. With a yellow or orange pad, a DA orbital buffer and M105, there are relatively few swirls/halograms which can't be removed. I've used M105 extensively and have always been pleased with the results, especially when used in conjunction with M205. Properly used, you can't go wrong with this compound/polish combination. Oh by the way, M105 and an orbital buffer make short work of hazy headlights - 5 minutes max.

This is an amazingly fast compound. It does it's job in about a minute. No waiting for abrasives to break down. Polish for a minute and wipe off. Inspect and move on. Removes swirls and scratches very effectively. Needs #205 to finish to perfection. This is a breakthrough technology, IMO. This product saves me gobs of time. Clean your pads after every couple of passes. Works well with a rotary, DA or by hand. Surprisingly good correction with the DA.

Although not a professional at auto detailing I have some experience working with a variety of waxes and polishes on several types of cars. I have tried all in one polishes, cleaning waxes, finishing waxes and have found the M105 and M205 polishes by Meguiar's to be thee go to polish for any automotive detailing job. M105 is an incredible cutting and cleaning wax for swirl marks, blemishes and 1200 grit and up scratches and M205 brings out the super shine in the car's coat.

I would definitely recommend using both these waxes in a sequence; first M105 and then M205. With that being said I also would recommend investing in a rotary polisher if you are thinking about wetting your toes in auto detailing. I initially tried to work these waxes by hand (which worked but was very hard to control the amount applied and also hardened very fast) and then decided to invest in a rotary polisher. The difference was night and day. All minor scratches on my Mercedes were instantly removed, all swirls marks were removed and I could work the wax very easily. THE SAYING LESS IS MORE definitely applies with both these waxes. If you use too much wax the effects will not be desirable and the wax will become unworkable very fast even if using a high powered rotary polisher.

All in all Meguiar's comes through once again with this wax system. Definitely a recommended purchase for any amateur to professional auto detailer.

Contact me if you have any questions about these waxes.
