    Fair play, but a tube of Menzerna and a light cut pad is only 15!! And theres plenty of other uses for it too. Wipes the floor with T-cut. Infact, T-cut is actually RUBBISH for yor paintwork. It messes it up big time. Just ask any of the bods on the detailing forum.........

    Which product do i buy for this - had a quick look on the cleannyourcar.co.uk website but cant work out what the best one to get is.

    I want to do same with my pillars but also want to use it to de-swirl (remove holograms etc) from the paintwork.

    I've had enough of T-Cut and have spent years of different polishing products and other methods - now I want to do this properly!

    Cheers in advance!

    Menzerna 203s is a good alround polish for the tough Audi paint. Can be applied by hand but will give better results by machine.

    Hello Calvin.Good luck buy the way mara! Bloody Ferrairi drivers! Think they are Tom Cruise in a Tomcat!!! The 203s http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...erna-203s.html is very good even with just a lakes hand cut pad (what you need for your pillars) http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...-hand-pad.html . However if you want to remove the swirl marks you will need a machine polisher to do it because Audis have rock-hard paint! Believe me I spent 15+ hours trying with a hand pad(and a forearm like olives other half) and this only removed the tip of the iceberg. Make sure you apply tardis and clay it BEFORE you polish it if your going to.
    For farther details look into WX's sticky threads on the detailing forum.

    Cheers Ollie - spot on - have ordered all the above.

    Now just need to find a decent bodyshop in Sussex to repair the Ferrari damage then can get back onto it!
