What's the best way to remove scratches??

I need some help... i have these really annoying scratches on my TL that always appear out of nowhere... when i wax my car it comes back after a few car washes... do i just have to get a new paint job to get rid of them forever or are there any other techniques that would work (ie:polishing)???

Nothing will save you more time or labor...........Then start with a quality polish like Optimum or einszett....The reason your scratches are reappearing is they are either new, or being filled by some sort of filling agent like a wax or sealant.

How are you washing / drying your car?

What wax do you use?

nothing in that picture will remove anything other than very very mild swirls....

as a matter of fact, only the scratch x will do that...the deep crystal polish will do nothing....

I use polish. It works well. I once swiped the garage door frame. Got about 80 degrees of paint on left rear wheel wheel. Paint came right off with no scratches using polis
