Have you already purchased the Meguiar's products?
M205 and ScratchX are very non-aggressive...
They might work and they might not, it depends upon how hard the paint is, how deep the swirls and scratches are and how good your technique for using the Flex 3401 is.
If you're new to the Flex, then I would recommend practicing on a car that's not your black Audi or practice on the trunk lid till you can prove to yourself you can get GREAT results on that paint system.
I'm worried that if the paint is really hard you might have a difficult time starting out for your first time machine polishing.
A good way to practice though would be with the M205 as it's a very easy product to work with and you certainly can't hurt anything with it... so maybe keep it simple and start there.
The Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover and Finishing Glaze are also incredibly easy products to work with for first timers...
