    everyone is saying amigo and wetglaze but WHY? what makes these stand out over EZ Creme? And isn't wetglaze very "similar"?

    Well, you got me!! That is some serious filling! But 6 coats does take a long time.

    KSG is the first sealant I bought, and I will never buy or use it again.

    Agreed. I wasn't even trying to use it as a filler. I was doing some testing to see if it did layer and at what point did adding more layers become a waste of time. I noticed it was filling swirls as some other sections I had done with another product still had them. I was like WTF???? I I tried it again, and took pictures that time. Its still hard for me to believe as I don't buy into layering at all.

    I also went back and tried two other well known fillters:

    SRP x 6

    DWG (original version)

    As you can see SRP and DWG filled the smaller swirls just fine. KSG seemed to fill the big ones much better.

    Danase Wet Glaze was supposedly similar to EZ Creme except it did not have any cleaners so it could be applied below or above the LSP.

    Ok, but which glaze has the most fillers? I have a black 3 series 2006 BMW and it has a lot of scratches and no matter what pad + compound/polishes I used with the PC, I still can't get rid of most of them.

    I have CG EZ Creme glaze, CG Vertua Bond, Prima Amigo, Menzerna Glaze, and BF Gloss Enhancing Polish. I prefer to use a glaze that won't strip my LSP as I have already applied BFWD and topped it with BF Midnight sun.

    Also, I am willing to buy CG Black Light Hybrid Radiant Finish from Amazon if it has serious fillers.

    And I am ready to put 6 coats if it will do the trick.

    I would suggest altering your polishing product/pad/technique to acheive the results you are looking for.

    I meant no disrespect. Just saying that you've already invested in the equipment. So take a look at what you are doing, and modify your approach to get the most out of that equipment before trashing it for a glaze.

    I am not trashing them. I still use them, and they work great on other cars I worked on except for this BMW. I have already polished this car (using the Meg Microfiber DA compound and Menzerna 85RD) and was able to get all the swirls out and bring back the shine, but I was not able to get the more sever scratches. Last year I used M105 and Uber Yellow, but it didn't take out these scratches also. Maybe if I use a rotary (I have to buy one), but I am not comfortable using one and risk burning the paint.

    That's why I want to use a glaze to try to cover up these.

    Fair enough. Although from my experience, I haven't seen a glaze fill RIDS. I've seen them fill buffer trails/hologramming, but never the more severe stuff. Chasing RIDS is a losing battle on a DD.

    yyaman I have to agre with pektel, that RIDS are not worth chasing most occasions. 1) they're dangerous to chase 2) you most likely will not notice them except under halogen lighting when doing the correction. If you get 90-95% correction, sunlight will reveal a nice swirl free finish and the few RIDS that catch your eye only at certain angles are not worth risking burning the paint or eating through healthy levels of clear, IMO.

    For what you're getting, the cost and risk far outweighs the benefits. There are some very deep RIDS on my 2002 M3 that I've had to come to that realization about. I enjoy a nice high gloss swirl free finish and honestly the RIDS I couldn't get are not even visible under sunlight or garage lighting, only under halogen lighting, which lets face it is never used to look at the car after the correction stage.
