    can anyone recommend any coloured polishes,

    ive been using autoglym super resin polish and find it leaves white residue in any little scratches or nicks in my paintwork which just draws your eye to them and really annoys me,

    local bodyshop told me to not use autoglym but couldnt suggest and alternative!!

    any suggestions would be appreciated??

    Funny today I used some cheap nasty halfords 'colour restorer' AKA Halfords cheap own version of T-cut which in fact is great for the ground in dirt as it lacks being as abrasive as T-cut, then applied some turtle wax colour magic, its not great but ideal for a first real clean I have given it, its what I use on my motorbike too, funny enough both in black lol

    I wouldn't use T-cut or even halfords colour restorer as they are paint strippers
