    Ok so I bought my A3 1.8T a week or so ago, I got a bargain, however it is in mechanically sound condition, the body work.. is not. There is many scratches and scuffs and even a couple of dents.

    I thought I would tackle the worst scratches/scuffs first and I opted to use G3 Scratch Remover Paste (instead of megs scratch-x). £7.99 from halfrauds... thought I'd give it a go. I used a damp microfiber towel as the applicator and a clean microfiber cloth as the buffer.

    After 7-8mins of elbow grease (keep adding paste as it breaks down)

    Also tried on the major wheel arch scuffs

    Not bad for £7.99... I am hoping this has not just concealed the scratches and they will magically re-appear in a couple of days, time will tell. But a well worth buying product, these were deep scratches and scuffs.

    It's taken the edge of it for sure

    Hard to tell from the pic, but if its only in the lacquer you'd be better wet sanding it out then polishing it back up. Otherwise it'll just round off the edges of the scratch & end up uneven

    I have also used the liquid form of this, and for best results needs a fair bit of water to help it (with a rotary machine)
