    I'm looking for a new polish to work with for my Audi A4. I used DACP and #80 but Audi's clear coat is quite tough to work with. Any suggestions? I haven't been to happy with the oils/fillers in the Meguairs products. I'm thinking of switching to a fillerless polish.

    Audi CC, to my knowlege is real soft! And easily marrable. I get by with either #80 or Optimum polish.

    Audi paint is like a freakin' rock, IMO. I had to use Optimum and a burgandy Meguiars cutting pad to get through the spider swirls and even in the direct sun, I could detect no marring at all. I just followed with Optimum and a yellow Meguiars polishing pad and went straight to my LSP.

    i've used DACP with a cutting pad and there was no marring, i just want something a little more effective and without the fillers/oils that they contain. i just haven't had good luck with Meguairs on my car, i was thinking about using SSR or Menzerna. i'm running out of both 80 & 83 so i thought it was time for a change

    Optimum is one I know works on Audi paint. Detailer's Pride Super Swirl Remover also works well but it does dust a bit.
