    Hi there, I'm looking for advice on the best product you guys have used to get scratches and swirlmarks out of your paintwork. I don't no if it's just me but these scratches show up slot more on black paintwork. The previous owner of the car looks like they didn't give a damn aboutrhe car as it is scratched all over! I've tried t-cut and colour magic and even sum scratch x stuff from halfords.
    I have various depths of scratches on the car, the deeper ones I will most likely have to wet sand to remove. The others am hoping to get out using some products you guys can advise to use and a sum elbow grease!!

    dark colours show swirls more than any of the lighter colours,

    Do completly remove them you will need to machine polish them out,

    But if you dont have a machine polisher buy some poor boys black hole and some auto glym super resin polish

    What ever you dont clay it, it will make it look worse,

    The PB black hole is a glaze that you apply to the whole car, and it has lots of fillers that will fill the swirls and make them look as if they have gone, its very good

    The AG SRP is a polish that contains fillers and you can apply this by hand to the worst scratches to cover them up

    Lastly you will need a good wax to go over the top of your glaze to protect, something like collinite 476

    I'm in the same boat as you, bought a 2006 E90 Msport in Metallic Sapphire black, the paint looked ok on first inspection but after a wash it looked like the previous owner was washing it with a hand full of stones

    So far I've bought a machine polisher off ebay, medium cutting compound, farcela G3 (the new restoring stuff), poorboys black hole.

    I have managed to cut out the worst of the surface scratches but have polished in swirl marks which I am now trying to polish out with the farcela stuff although I am looking for advice on best product for machine use too.

    I've had really good results from what I've used and have spent around £80 with enough stuff to last me about a year.
