Your right,german paint can be hard, but jet black am assuming it is, can be soft, so what Compound&polish are you using? Also what MF pads you using( cutting, or finishing pad

Try Meg's D300 on a MF finishing pad then finish with Meg's 205 on a finishing pad (foam)

I would use Lime Prime lite ideally with a machine polisher, if not microfibre cloth. For black I would do it 3 times with Dodo Lime Prime Lite and wash between stages then apply a quality wax like Purple Haze Pro.
It's all in the prep so make sure the vehicle has been clayed thoroughly.
Good luck.

Lime Prime lite has know abrasive so it will only cleanse the paint and not remove the hollow grams , you need something that has some cutting ability like Meg's D300 or Sonax perfect finish on a white Hex logic pad.

Going to be honest here,

I don't really understand the need or point of lime prime.

If you've washed and polished a car, ipa wiped it down and protected it, what's the need to use a pre wax cleaner?

Holograms that you are creating sounds like either -

-Technique (trying to rush)
-Dirty pads being used (the slightest contaminant will re-mark your paintwork)
-Microfibres you are using are not soft enough so are marring / swirling your paintwork

In the circumstances being described above (OP still getting holograms) - LP whilst technically is a pre wax cleanser, it's nice and oily (so good for soft paints) and can correct paint a little if worked long enough due to the abrasives it contains
