    Went a little overboard with a tar removal product and used a plastic nail brush on the tough bits - its left some areas quite dull and some are clearly scratched on the surface.

    Luckily its mainly the sills and bits on the front and rear

    A good coat of wax seems to have improved things but I think the damage is done

    Anything I can do short term to reduce the scratch effect guys ?

    Is T-cut an option on a silver metallic S3

    Scratch x is very good.

    In future use a clay bar for subborn tar spots.
