    I would polish it yourself.

    If your relationship works the same as mine then you will end up paying to repair any damage to the paintwork (due to lack of talc) anyway!!

    Polishing won't make it bead.

    I'd just do it though. Bang a really durable wax on it and have done for a good few months.

    The Mrs gets a brand spanker every 2-3 years.
    It goes back looking like a tramps dodgem.

    But with about 4k per year the dealer usually takes it back.

    She will never look after a car as long as she has a .:p...........answers on a postcard....

    Our S3 is actually in the Mrs's name but she isn't even allowed to wash it never mind polish it.
    She has 10 years training to catch up on 1st!
    She just laughs when I mention the "double bucket" method of washing haha.

    My mrs has her own set of gear - double buckets (with grit guards), Lambswool mitt, loadsa microfibres and i bet she does a hell of a better job than most! Never a swirl mark in sight!

    Now talking of which who polishes their car with an orbital polisher, and if you have black what polish do you use? Im just looking into this, given up buffing by hand (so to speak!) and normal auto glym polish highlights any stone fleck in my phantom black finish!

    Consider how she looks after YOU, and that sometimes doing something for others without reward is respectful.

    By the sound of it, i think its tar you got on your paintwork. You could try to use claybar or use tar remover

    i would say it is like rusty dots from exhaust, tar is black or not?

    Snow foam the car before washing it and then get some Iron-X on it that will remove it. I get exactly the same but the car gets washed 2-3 times a week so its easy to come off.

    THREAD REVIVAL!!!

    Just took the dog out to fire out its evening 'pony' and noticed its raining! So straight to the Audi I go.

    I last waxed the car on the 16th Feb for the Vag and Stance meet.

    We're now on the 6th of March...

    This picture has no filters or effects on it AT ALL.

    Purely iphone camera, and torch (its 11.45pm)

    Autoglym Super Resin Polish + G3 Wax.

    Not bad for 3 weeks!

    So those products come highly recommended.

    Easy on, easy off too!
