What refining pads and polishes did you use on these other cars you did, and which did you use on this particular car?

I Used the above cutting pad with 105,then i used a hex logic finishing pad,using meguiars ultimate polish,then waxed.

car looks stunning but close up the faint lines are still visible.

M105 is quite aggressive, maybe need to follow up with something a little stronger than UP. In my limited experience with UP so far, it's got far less cut than M205. Maybe try that instead?

Does meguiars ultimate polish have a filler like SRP does? This could help mask very feint lines.

New to this stuff, but facing same issues as OP.
Just finished pass with M105 on my car, still seeing faint scratches like above. Trying to get my head around the logic of a lesser pad / polish(M205) being able to remove this if the M105 with cutting pad couldn't do it.

Can't comment on M105, but i've used Menzerna 2200/4000 combo on Audi and Porsche paint with very good effect. Latterly ive found that Menzerna fast cut breaks down so well that it's been a good replacement to 2200 when a degree of correction was needed

Hard to say, but could be compound inflicted swirls and/or DA haze. Less aggressive pad and polish combo should fix it in that case.

Ive used 105 on similar BMW paint with a DAS6 pro and CQ Orange Hexlogic. Found it needs additional lubricant (Chemical guys do one or just deionised water) or it dusts and drys before youve achieved the correction youre looking for and also left its own marks.

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.

From reading your post, the scratches you are talking about are still visible in the surface and they are scratches caused by damage prior to cutting/polishing?

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?
