I’d def try it if I ever got a problem again

I think my problem with marks poss started off with to strong APC Cleaner or left on to long
Thanks for the suggestion. That looks like a solid product, so I've ordered it.

I'll give it a go before heading to Lime Prime or Megs on the DA....will post the results up here (hopefully it'll blow me away!)

So the Kamikaze came today, and unfortunately ended up being an expensive disappointment.

There's beautiful sunshine this morning, which although is no good for washing the car, allowed me to take a photo that showed the defects a little more;



At this stage, I'm really out of ideas. My next step will probably be Lime Prime on a finishing pad. Also, because I'm not 100% what caused it, I'm going to have to move away from Done and Dusted for now. I'll update the thread once I've tried a mild polish.

Thanks,
Tom

SUCCESS.

Nothing I tried as far as wipe on-wipe off products worked (and I tried a lot!).
As stated, Megs 105 partially did a job by hand.
Lime Prime by hand did nothing, but I decided to test a panel this afternoon with it on a CG-HL white by DA, and it's done the job perfectly





I still don't know how it happened, and I will probably change a couple of my products, but at least now I know I can go over the entire car in a few weeks with a single pass, using LP on a white pad.

LP - where the hell would we be without it?!

Thanks,
Tom

Thanks for this thread!!

I’m in exactly the same position with my 2 month old 3 series.
No idea how it happened, but no success with wipe on wipe of products either.

I agree. Having bought some FSE a few weeks back and tried it a couple of times to no good effect, I am underwhelmed by this product on even faint water spots.

More than likely acid rain caused those spots. I had a few showers around that time caused etching into clear coat.

FSE is good on water spots but those type need machine polished out as you’ve realised.

Roger that!
Its easy to dis a product if it does not do what you wanted.
FSE is on my list and been strongly recommended it by someone that has been using it. Its really hard to find a bad Koch Chemie product, maybe some are a a tad better in some products, but none I have used are duds by any means. JMHO though.
A new car really needs to be decontaminated first job. These cars can be stored in quite bad places and open to all sorts and sometimes ages. Dealer gets a temp to "Buff it up" with a cloth to tart it up and straight away its worse.
Best get it right day one and start off where you need to be.
