Default Best "AIO" Polish/Paint Sealant

I've done some research and can't decide between the following:

1) 3D HD Speed
2) Blackfire Total Polish and Seal
3) McKee's 37 360


I'm also open to other opinions. The vehicle I'll be using this on has some moderate to minor swirling. No noticeable scratches or anything like that; just paint swirling.

I have not used any of these but everyone always says HD Speed.

Good thread comparing the two.

Meguiar's D151 is another one that folks like.

In a pinch Meguiar's white wax works very well. The abrasives in it can be controlled depending on the pad to increase the cut. Their Mirror Bright polishing wax is also good if in a pinch. Not as much cut as white wax but still pretty good.

I was hoping you'd chime in. I know a lot is going to depend on pad selection, and right now, all I have in regards to pads is the Adams orange and white pads, plus a few black pads I use for machine waxing. I was thinking of giving one of the above products a try, starting off by using a white pad. Depending on the amount of cut, I could always move up to the orange pad for more cut. I've read very good things about HD Speed, and you are correct, most that have used it love it and recommend it.

I just recently started using Jescar (Menzerna) Powerlock with a layer (or more) of Collinite 845 over the top of it. They are the two easiest paint protection products I have ever used in my driving life and look and last better than anything I've had experience with. Its been over a month of multiple rain storms, multiple multiple trips to the car wash and sitting outside nearly 24/7 on my daily driver and it still beads great and when cleaned up looks just like the day I applied it. Supposedly the combo without any care is good for 4-6 months but I plan to add multiple coats over the top after a good handwash. It looks and performs better than Zaino ever did for me at a fraction of the cost.

I plan to start a cycle of application in the spring of the powerlock and then just add coats of the Collinite throughout the summer. Then in the fall I will strip it and reapply for the winter months. And then strip and reapply in the spring. But I am not sure that's even needed. I'm **** about it though I guess.

I just picked up a griots DA and going to go with HD speed first. Heard and seen so many good things I feel I can't go wrong with it

Meguiar's just released there new AIO known as D166 Ultra Polishing Wax. This looks like a competitor to Speed but with longer lasting protection. May want to give this a shot.

Detailed Image is taking pre-orders for it.

KAIO is nice but it has no correcting abilities. I believe the OP is looking for something that corrects and protects in one step for production type details.

KSG is nice but it is a bit finicky. There are a lot of easier products to use now a days.

I've had success with 3D Speed. Combined with a cutting pad, it removed the moderate and light swirls on a black Subaru. It didn't remove heavier swirls.
