    Meh, the burgundy bottle stuff is shit. You're better off with a polish anyways. I recommend Meguiar's #7, or Swirl-free polish if you need to remove swirls. I don't feel that there's a difference between the circular motion or back and forth. Personally, I prefer the circular.

    Body Scrub is alright if you paint really needs something strong. You are better off using Meguiars Mirror Glaze line for paint prep and their #26 wax or S100 for waxing (see stickied thread for S100 info).

    At some point, the paint will get beyond repair. It's at that point where you need to decide to either live with it and take care of it to keep the paint where it is at now, or get a repaint.
