    What would people recommend on how to get out some light scratches on my Silver Avant

    They are not that deep but normal polish doe snot seem to help (Chemical Guys All in One)
    I dont have any power tools so I can onkly work by hand but was wondering if there is some product/procedure that may take them out?

    My dear old day would always say 'that will T Cut out buh' but I am assuming things have moved on sonce T Cut??

    Thanks

    Try something like GTechniq P1 on a foam applicator pad.
    It's a great polish, breaks down very well and can remove some significant scratches :thumbsup:

    I also tried chemical guys all in one polish to remove some scratches, it did remove some scuffs on my wheel arch but didnt really make any impact on the scratches... I have been told Meguiars Scratch-X is a decent product for removing scratches by hand, so I will be trying this at the weekend. Let me know how you get on.

    CZM Megs scratch X is good, I have some other compounds etc I use as well for scratch removal . A Machine Polish would get rid of most as well. When we have another meet I could show you a few tricks of the trade lol

    Cleaned my MAF btw and had it scanned at Audi and no faults found :)

    I tried wet sanding a scratch out on my boot lid today, it certainly improved it but it can be seen from a given angle unfortunately.

    Just noticed that the scuff on my wheel arch that I had completely polished out (it had totally gone) has now reappeared!? :(
