if you are thinking of getting an s3 in fantum black, dont bother. what a f**king nightmare colour. i thought i would treat the car to a bit of a buff up before summer, purchased some fancy wax, spent a day cleaning the paint (bonnet & wings, only polished these because after washing they seemed to still have crap stuck all over them ), clayed the bonnet & wings, then with MEGUIARS paint cleaner, then polish, then hit the whole car with CHEMICAL GUYS BUTTER WAX, after all that it looked pretty good.
after washing the car & drying it (a week after polishing it) , with the sun,beaming down on it, the bonnet looked like Roy Orbison had polished it with 80 grit wet & dry, in other words it looked a f**king mess!!!!!!! big long hazy scratches all over it, you cant feel them but it looks sh*t, i use applicator pads & microfiber towels & cant understand where ive gone wrong, as it stands i ain`t a happy bunny.
IHAVE ALSO GAINED ACROSS THE BONNET WHAT I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE AS FISH SCALES ALL OVER THE BONNET, THEY LOOK LIKE LITTLE SPECS OF METAL WHICH HAVE OXIDISED ON THE PAINT , YOU CAN FEEL SUM OF THEM WITH YOUR FINGERNAIL ,BUT ONLY JUST, IF YOU POLISH THEM THE OXIDISATION GOES BUT YOU CAN STILL FEEL THE SPEC STUCK TO THE PAINT, as it stands i f**king hate my car now! i have tryed to take some fotos but all you get is a nice reflection of the clouds! i
if anybody can shed some lite on my minor crisis it would be appreciated, if this carry`s on , what with having to pussy foot around the paint then it`s days are numbered, & it`s only 3 mnths old. somebody please restore some faith in me with my car as i love it, but not the paint!!!!!!
