Let me ask you this, does your fingernail catch on the scratch?

If it comes down to it I would suggest getting something a bit more agressive.

One of the keys is to use a product properly when trying to remove swirls. Here are sonme links if you havent seen them:

Now as mentioned above, if the scratch is too deep, then you may only be able to improve it a little by hand, if anything.

It takes a lot of passion and in most instances more then 1, or 2 passes to remove the scratch.

Hey,

Tried some more times with ScratchX, it worked, the scratch is almost gone...but the second one you can still see a little bit...

I think I need to get something more agressive..maybe a polish?? Any suggestions??

Thanks

I would suggest getting some of that M105, I had couple scratches here and there and I worked it with a foam applicator, awesome results!

Well that M105 is not available in Switzerland :(
Something else?
