    When i had my car i always used " MER" that was excellent for removing scratches and to polish the car once every 6 months,and when i used to wash the car i would put some in the bucket with ordinary car shampoo .

    For scratches I'd use T Cut.

    I've used, T-Cut Scratch Remover before today and have the tube left in the boot, just in case :oops:
    Really good stuff

    Depends what paint you have on the car. Dont use T Cut on metallic paint cos it might scratch the lacquer.
    If you've got non metallic paint use T Cut on light scratches and rubbing compound on deeper stuff. Be careful with rubbing compound as its quite aggressive.

    Well i do have metallic paint, and that that i linked to works fine

    Try Zymol, Autoglym or Meguiars, All available from Halfords.

    Meguirs is the professionals choice, then Zymol and finally Autoglym.

    It is a metallic blue

    T-Cut then CrystalGlo (used on motorbikes) for me for small scratches, used to use MER, but CrystalGlo seems better as it leaves an Acrylic coating and doesnt streak or contain Silicon.

    My DH who's a car buff agrees that Meguirs is probably the best for you, and available at Halfords too ... Zymol is better (up to £ks per pot!) but less easily available. So go for Meguirs

    ... or just take the girlie option and buy yourself a new car :whistling:

    Be careful when you use anything like t-cut on your cars paintwork as its pretty aggressive and removes layers of the clear coat which protects the paint.Depending on the depth of the scratches i would use a decent quality polish which will cover fine scartches but if they are quite heavy then you need something with a little bit of cut in it.Most scratches on your car are caused by car washes as you probably are aware,so if you have a newish car then stay clear if you want to protect its paintwork.;-)

    I use some stuff in a tube from Lidls, about £1.35 a tube, it works brilliantly on small scratches.

    Autoglym Paint Renovator (White bottle with purple label) is the best on the market in its price range IMO.T Cut is too abrasive if used on metallic paint.This product works very well and if used with a bit of elbow grease will get out most light surface scratches.Cost about £6 - £7 ish and you can get it from Halfords.
