    You sure it's not Meguiars Scratch X you were using?

    Try wash the area that is cloudy with some car wash wash liquid and water, as you would normally wash the car, then feel the cloudy area with your fingers. Does it feel a bit rough compared to non damaged areas? If so, then you could have taken off the laquer. Or, if you could get the car round to a body shop, ask them what it could be.

    My E36 had a small patch of cloudy area on the RHS C pillar, but a little rub of Autoglym P/Ren removed it. There was something in the lquer that had reacted to something I think, but its gone now.

    No, polishing is not a bad thing, more a good thing, the more coats you have, the more protected your paint will be from the elements.

    To remove the top coat/laquer, using T-Cut would take a matter of minutes if applying heavy pressure over the same spot repeatedly. The laquer itself is usually only 2 or 3 coats, depending of manufacturer, and if you've ever sprayed anything before, you'll know how thin 1 layer is.

    Errm as far as I remmember the cloudy surface its as smooth as the rest of the car....It does not seem like the laquer has been stripped off but I will confirm with you as soon as I get out. The cloudy area can only be seen in certain lighting conditions outside, you cant see it all the time.
