    Re: Can't get rid of all the scratches

    Ok, I've been on my local shop today.
    I couldn't find what you all guys advised me to use.
    I ended up buying the Koch Chemie M2.01 "Hochglanz-Antihologramm-Politur" and a Flexipads Microfibre Pad "Finishing GRIP" for medium and hard paints.
    They've promised I would get awesome results on the BMW hard clear coat.
    But you know how it is, until I can't test it, I will not know. I may have to wait until Friday.
    Any advice on this product?

    2.01 is very mild. You are chasing RIDS, be happy you got the swirls out, its better having more paint than no RID. A professional is not one who cuts but one who knows when not to cut.

    I have that polish and it's a great finishing polish that really can get you some awesome gloss. Go back and see if they have koch chemie h8.02 which is a heavy compound. And get maybe a medium polishing pad to use with m2.01 after h8.02 with the mf pad. They have a medium cut polish also and it's with a 5 in the start. Since you have a hard clearcoat you might need a little more aggressive finishing pad than the least cutting they have.

    You were right. It didn't made it any better than the HD Adapt.
    I will have to try a more cutting compound. I don't know if jump straight to the H8.02 or maybe try something lighter first, like the H7.01 or even F5.01.

    And regarding what Ronin47 said, I agree, but I don't think I'm dealing with RIDS here. I'm pretty sure it's swirls. I can't get them to show in the pictures but in plain sight they look like swirls.
    If I can get rid of the swirls I can live with RIDS.
