    I've got some slight swirls and light scratches that I want to get rid of and generally want to give the car a really good clean inside and out.

    I've heard "Meguiars Scratch X" is good for dealing with the scratches but what else do I need ?

    There seems to be so much choice out there. that I'm quite lost.

    The cars a black a3 with half leather seats.

    Any recommendations would be great .. (even down to what I need to apply the scratch x with .. it looks like a sponge from the youtube clip)

    Thanks

    If you really want a good finish, I would recomeend paying a good detailer to come over and machine polish it etc to take the paint back to the best condition possible then seal it all. You will then find it a lot easier to maintain. I tried to do it myself the first time but ended up just making it worse and it took forever as I didnt have the tools and knowledge. I get mine detailed once a year normally and have no problem cleaning in between

    As above mate, if you want to fork out for a machine polisher look at polished bliss or cleanyourcar.co.uk with menzerna polish! doing it yourself will take time and a little research so won't go into it unless you want me to. By hand isn't impossible but with the audi paint being so hard it will take you a lifetime unfortunately, menzerna again will do the job, intensive polish/power finish is your best bet. Unsure how Megs scratch X V2.0 will work on the audi paint. look at the german applicators if your going to have a go. http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/accessories/ultimate-german-applicator/prod_280.html the menzerna polishes are here http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/polishing/polish/menzerna-250ml/cat_28.html as I said, unless you want to spend £100's on the equipment yourself, best to get a detailer to do it and then it's just a case of topping up and a good wash method

    Here is a routine for you to follow that covers the basics (assuming you are working by hand) and explains what is needed to apply and remove each product...
