HI,

I`m new here so here is my introduction.
I drive an BMW e91.

Pics say more than words.:

In the beginning of this year the wheels are polished by a professional company. See pics above.

The polishing is well done but I still see some white dots in the polished part.

The wheels are now off the car because of my winterset.
Last night I polished the lips again after driving this summer. I heard that Mothers is a very good product so I bought Mothers metal and aluminium polish and I bought Mothers Billet to finish with.

On the pic below you can see the finishing difference with of without the use of billet.
Right part is with billet / Left part is with only mag & Aluminium.

This winter I hope to get the polishing finish even better than the polishing company that did it last year for me. So I need some help from you guys.

When I first look at the polished part is looks very good. Looks like mirror finish but when I look better I see a lot of small dots in the polishing. It is not as I want it to be...

Do I need to wedsand again to get this away or it this just the type of material. (grid?)

It is very hard to see on picture but I guess you guys can see what I mean.

I also found a better picture on this forum that has the same issue. see pic below.
On my wheel there are a bit less dots but this is exactly what I mean.

Wet sand again and see what happens. It might be in the aluminum meaning it'll just keep popping up.
