There are alternative products on the market specifically created to have the cleansing ability of IPA without containing IPA. That in itself makes one question the suitability of IPA.

As long as you don't apply it in the sun, temperature won't be an issue. In the summer, it is important not to allow it to cure too long, 1 minute will suffice.

If the car already has swirl marks, I really wouldn't worry about what you use. A cheap noodle mitt and a budget drying towel is more than fine!

If its on the Audi Official page, there's probably a degree of Photoshop used, to aid marketing. This is only my opinion. As for a wet look, Scholl S40 is a good polish to try (with a polishing...

They recommend that you apply it with the MF towel and continue to wipe until clear. I've seen a few people on Youtube apply it as you would with a traditional wax, with good results.

AG Tar Remover is my recommendation to remove the visible mark. Apply a few drops, leave to dwell for 1 minute and agitate with a clean soft MF towel. Repeat if required.

Add clay bar and abrasive polish to the list of things to try. Tar remover is probably your best bet as suggested above. I would recommend Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover.

If the car is defect free, leave well alone! Don't clay it or polish it. Just apply a good quality LSP. Clay and polish it in a year from now if needed. Looks good mate!
