: Small Scratches...

A question on the paint work - I got a E46 which I got 2nd hand - and is white. It's awesome, but unfortunately the previous owner did not know how to look after the paint work - but obviously attempted to wash it (badly). Hence there are literally millions of SMALL scratches, which aren't all that visible, except at night, and there's a moon shining on it, or in the garage, under a 60W light bulb.

I've tried everything to get rid of them, and whilst I think it is slowlyyyyyy improving.... I wonder what other methods there are available to get rid?

I have used Meguires Scratch X on the whole body many times, and that's what is slowly removing the tiny scratches, but still they are there.

(Maybe the previous owner had a jealous girlfriend who caught him cheating, and decided to wash the car.... with sand... :cry: )

Thanks guys, you are all fantastic

Do a search on "Random Orbital" or "Porter Cable". You'll have many threads discussing what you'll probably need to buy.
