Slight struggle with my s3

As title says I'm having a slight struggle with correcting some defects in my spring blue s3 🤔

I'm currently using hex-logic pads and v-line range off compounds...starting with orange pad v34/32 with no avail so stepped to yellow /v34 but STILL no better...

What can you people suggest I do now? I do have a pair off meguiars microfibres pads on route which was going try at weekend if here.

I would either change your compound and polish as chemical guys stuff is pretty naff, stick with your hex pads and have a look at KochChemie H8 which is a great cutting compound and M2 anti hollowgram polish which is a great finishing polish on Audi paint.

What polisher are you using? Plus have a look at the Scholl range to.

I got the same car and had the same problem.
Meguiars m105 on a orange hex logic pad got me no where.

I used a microfibre cutting pad with menzerna fg300 then refined using a white hex logic pad and Meguiars m205.

Heres the results.

Came up really well and got a high level of correction.

Agree with both above. Had no luck with V line with my Audis, but a MF pad with D300 worked wonders.

Any of the recommendations above I'm sure will work a treat too
