I use Klasse AIO, but I have been polishing with Menzerna in a 4 step process due to the sensitivity of Jet Black.
+1 on Klasse AIO, works very well.

Hey lemans...whats up with the power lock sealant? Is that designed to keep the wax on your car longer? I noticed its the last step on your 5 step routine..

The polymer sealant creates a barrier and protects the paint from dirt elements. Also gives a deep shine. Easier to clean off dirt after that. Works great on wheels too....hose off the brake dust.

I finally claybarred my X, and I now I cant get enough of it. There is something so satisfying about the claybar.

Do you claybar before or after the polish? I always claybar first.

After the last few trips to the camp's mud road I really owe my baby a good wash/claybar/polish/wax treatment..... seriously. That and she really wants her bigger shoes on... the 18's don't quite fill out the wheel wells like the 20's but I gotta buy a pair of tires.

My 5 step routine:
  1. Menzerna Intensive Polish PO91E +Menzerna Top Inspection
  2. Menzerna Final Finish PO85RD +Menzerna Top Inspection
  3. Menzerna Finishing Glaze PO115C
  4. Menzerna Full Molecular Jacket (FMJ)
  5. Menzerna Power Lock Sealant

Steps compilation courtesy of Phil.
You don't have to do both Steps 4 and 5. I am doing it because I have the FMJ from before and want to use it. But otherwise Powerlock should be good.
You can use orbital polisher for all steps....personal preference.
