    What's the best product for repairing some scratches on my Black A3?

    Some are deep from a little scrape some just light stone chips and some swirl marks from the car wash.
    Never using a car wash again btw.

    Want to try to sort it out tomorrow while I've a day off from work and the mrs.

    Thanks.

    Meguiar's scratch X is pretty good for light scratches and swirls. Deep scratches it wont do though. Stone chips need to be touched up with matching paint code, left a few days and then polished flush.

    Is it that good? As I have a few which need to be dealt with.

    TIA

    Meguiar's scratch X is good for very light scratches. If you can feel it with your finger nail then it's too deep. Scratch X takes out the light scratches without putting more back in like somme polishing / cutting compounds.
