I would start with some Ceriglass and a rayon pad. Polishing glass is a not a quick activity and it can get messy. Keep the speeds quite low and check for heat building up. There is a heavy polish from 3M but not used it although it is meant to be aggressive.

Just the equivalent of a polishing pad but for glass eg http://www.elitecarcare.co.uk/elite-...disc-130mm.php

A normal foam pad is not really going to do very much on glass aside from cleaning it. I have used paint polish and foam pads as a quick way of cleaning glass or removing an old sealant but it will not remove glass scratches.

As an aside, the Autoglym glass polish works well with a foam pad on exterior glass with a rotary or DA

Polishing glass is not like polishing paint, glass is very, very hard. If you have some minor scratches then you might have some success with a cerium oxide polish and a rayon pad, combined with a lot of time and elbow grease, but if the glass is undamaged as you say then I'd just concentrate on getting it super clean. Autoglym glass polish is well liked, although I find it very powdery and again, it is not actually a 'polish' because it is just not abrasive enough to cut glass, especially by hand as it is most often used., but if you can cope with the mess then it does give a good result. I tried Ceriglass with a rayon pad but tbh, the results were hardly worth the cost, time and effort put in. When I get another dry but cool day with nothing else to do and I don't plan on using my machine arm for the rest of the week, I might give it another go.

Griots Glass Polish is really effective by DA or rotary to give glass a deep polish.

Autoglym Glass Polish> Autoglym Fast Glass if needed. Been using these for years and no complaints.I believe in the symmetry of products in most cases.

Recommend me a glass polish

Glass cleaned and coated with CarChem Hydrocoat.... cleaned & shiny. I’ve also been known to just use a normal car polish and wax... same result really (not on the windscreen though!)

I’ll add that top picture is of the rear passenger door when open!
