If you are happy with the finish (apart from the still visible scratches) that your existing combination has produced may be you just need to have another go at those specific areas again?
yes prior to cutting/polishing

tried twice,maybe need a bit more time spending on them

No, UP is a polish with abrasives, no fillers.

I guess I misread? I was under the impression the compound left it's own marks (haze). If the defects are still present after one or 2 passes, you need to either keep going, or stop before you burn through (depending on paint levels).

M105 works quick, you don't have a lot of time before it starts to dry. This is why I use it was a MF pad, it cuts hard and fast, before the polish loses it's moisture. You should also be using the kevin brown priming method for this polish, as it helps extend the working time.

So i found it needed to be followed by 205 to finish it off - again needs lubricant.

I think the hard paint and the ageing recipes for 105/205 means you may need a longer working time that you may be trying at the moment.
M205 doesn't need any extra lubricant, you can work that polish for days (figurative) before it starts to dry out. You might want to adjust your technique, or your environment if you're finding it drying.

Das6pro pretty weak DA compared to modern DA like the Das6pro plus, huge difference in correction abilty between the two.

If I was in your situation, without having to buy a new DA just to correct the defects that are bugging you I would get a 250ml bottle of Menz 400 compound along with a MF pad and go over it 2-3 passes at a time at moderate to firm pressure.

Menz 400 is packed full of ammonia which helps to soften hard paint such as VAG paints and the MF pad maximises cut and less flex than a foam pad. With only 8mm of DA stroke to play with you don't want to waste energy on pad flex.

Even with a Porter Cable, M105 and a Mf pad will cut hard enough to remove most defects in a couple passes. If you still have marks left after a couple of those sets you might want to look into wet sanding, and definitely measure your paint depth.
