    I have an '02 S3, light silver and wanted to help remove some of the swirls. They are only really seen in direct sunlight so assume they are not that bad. I know the best way would be to use a machine but I think I'd do more harm than good.

    So my question is what off the shelf products are best to use? Megs swirl X? Poorboys SSR?

    I've used the megs swirl X both with a polisher and by hand and it's very good stuff. Use a damp microfibre or lint free cloth and with a bit of time + elbow grease you should see those swirls gone mate.

    If your working by hand then you will be lookng to fill and mask the swirls rather than remove as its far to difficult on the hard Audi paint.

    My recommendation would be Chemical Guys Glossworkz Glaze and then topped with a sealant or wax or alternatively chemical Guys All In One polish which polishes, shines and seals

    cheers ill give it a go.

    Thats what I have read also, my only option is to mask them rather than correct them.

    cheers for the advice.
