    hi guys,

    I have a jet black E90 320d. The car has a few minor scratches here and there. I have some car plan t-cut scratch remover, I think this is mild t-cut. I have used this on other cars with good results. However, when I recently used in on my black bmw the results were awful. Residue was being left and the scratch appeared worse, it was leaving like a smudge around the scratch. I cant get this off either. Any ideas of whats wrong ? What should I be using ?

    many thanks

    That's why you should never use T cut. It will dull black.

    Have you got any other polishes to hand like AG SRP?

    IF you paint work is metallic, T cut will take the laquer off, and make much worse unless it is metallic friendly, but I would never use it!

    Not sure what ag srp is. Ill look it up. I do have a brilliant wax, p21s, it is from america. My plan was to try and get rid of the scratches and then wax the car. I am usually good at getting a car to look good, but must say that the bmw black is one difficult colour.

    AG SRP - Autoglym super resin polish. It contains cleaner, fillers and a sealant so you can easily hide the scratches and then wax over. T cut doesn't work as a defect remover much unless you've bumped into a bollard etc

    Thats where I got mine from, still got ~300ml left and its nearly a two year old bottle

    AG UDS perfect for dark cars to remove haze is around £6 for 500ml, alot cheaper than any shop and its what I use after AG SRP.
