You really really really have to watch these dealers hey. Read every single bit if fine print and triple check absolutely every single figure in every contract, the amount of random bullshit and "mistakes" i have found going through the agreements ect is ridiculous, unbelievable what these guys would get away with with the average car buyer not really knowing what they are signing or even paying for.

What gets me is that they tell you they are selling a car a day or more and yet they make the same simple mistakes every time. You would think if they were turning over that many cars they would have the process down like clockwork where ****ups were the exception to the rule.

Well thats just it, they aren't mistakes they are there to make profit out of thin air at the expense of people who dont know any better. Its just crazy, totally buying private from now on.

So my 3" spider cutting pad from waxit decided to split...

Just pulled back in time to not hit the car with the RO. But copped the pad to the face!

What polisher are you using? Scholl pads? A couple of mine did the same thing with the concours DA and prolonged use..... Been meaning to send an email off.

One of my FI ones did that. They sent me a replacement and another free pad for my troubles. Haven't had a problem since (could be related to me not being arsed to actually use them...)

Using Waxit's Concours 900. The pad had only done 3 sections - 6 passes per section - ~400x400mm square.

It seems they are out of stock on 3"/85mm pads now
