ben209 I was told to try carnuba (spelling) wax. Has anyone else tried this and any reports?

Dan Not cobwebs? i sometimes get what look like scratches only to later discover they are tiny little cobwebs where a spider has went for a walk! Hence they disappear and reappear all the time!

Andymac I've noticed lots of scratches on mine around door handles. Especially passenger side where wife sits mainly. Seems nails are enough to do it! They buff out easily with a little t cut or similar. Worst car I've had for it by far.

tonic blue Hi Guys,I'm a car valeter and own a tonic blue c max. I find that if you wax your car twice a year with a hard wax, and then wash it weekly in the summer and twice weekly in the winter it looks fine,you can go over the top when cleaning, but i find simoniz products the best. I use simoniz shield protection car wax and simoniz pink wash wax (and you have to shake the bottle with this product). I also use the alloy wheel cleaner in the bucket of shampoo just adding a little bit and using an old wash mit and my alloys look great.I haven't had a problem with scrathes.

silver zetec The scratches appear below the lacquer which is what puzzles me!

Richard G I've used the coloured polish before now to sort of do both together

When I say polish, I really mean wax.

I use Meg's NTX Generation Wax..

Just been out to look again in different light conditions, and I can't find the scratches I saw earlier today.

They are deffinately there, but I think I was onto something about the light conditions.

Here one day, gone the next, but they will come back !!

Interesting to know that you other guy's also have problem with light scratches, in must be a soft lacqer or something.
