    i used t-cut (the colour one for Silver) and im REALLY impressed with it - it's removed a few littles one and only left a tiny slight one that's down to primer.

    Really please, takes a fair few goes to get it sorted though - didnt take too much off you cant even tell#

    I might look into waxes and so on at a later date when i get the front end touched up.


    *NEW QUESTION!*

    Any one know of a motorised polisher thats cheap and nooby friendly??

    i'd say the t-cut colour match is better than the meguairs scratch remover!! stick with what you got mate!!

    once you've been using t-cut you want to wax it, if only a quick wax on the bits you've done for now, otherwise your leaving the paint unprotected!

    then give it a proper wax next time you wash the whole car!

    i'd say give motorised polishers a miss if you've not used them before, one slip or too much pressure and you've taken the lacquer off and need a bodyshop to respray!

    unless of course you can practice on someones banger 1st lol!!

    I use meguairs techwax 2.0 and it is the best stuff............I used to use autoglym but it always left a dusty film on the car (maybe it was just static) swapped and wont go back cost a fair bit but a good shine costs a good price imo

    yeah exactly, i was using turtle wax platinum and that was the same..

    left white powdery substances in between panels and on the grill, bumper trims etc, all the places where its hard to get it off basically!

    i paid £13 for that techwax 2.0 but i think its worth every penny, in my opinion anyway!! wouldnt go back to the cheap rubbish now lol

    I used that meguiars scratch stuff and I have to agree that it's not that good...but i think it's meant to be for more finer scratches as it's less abrasive rather than T cut which is for a removing more of a scuff mark.

    Hi mate

    I had loads of minor scratches on my drivers side window from git or something when pulling the window up. Spent 35 hard earned bucks ona glass polishing kit and it did sweet fa!!!! In the end i bought a new window from bmw for 72 quid. So if they are annoying you like they was me i reckon this is the best way to go,its so shinny now i scare myself when i look in it :P

    your right its very lightly adbrasive, ive been told by a friend who does detailing/valeting for a living though that before using anything like t-cut or any other scratch remover to give the car a good wash with a citrus based car wash shampoo to cut through any wax left on the car! also he said use a wash mitt or cloth rather than a sponge!!

    going to give this a go on the weekend and give the meguiairs scratch remover another go! will let you know how it goes!
