JWK is an unknown quantity at this point

I screwed up and bought a scratch removed advertised on TV. When I got it I tried it on a small scratch I have on the hood of my black 328I. Not only did this shit not remove the scratch, it dulled the paint and put several small scratches around the larger one. The scratches are not down to the metal, but I need help and need advice on what to do.

I am going to call the company I ordered it from and insist on my money back! I should have known better not to trust a product sold on TV. I also got a dent remover that looks like a piece of shit. I think I will use it to put a dent in the head of the idiot that invented this shit.

Please help.

Try using a fine grade polish like a Poorboys SSR 1 or Meguiars #83. They will remove the hazing you are seeing. Good luck

Tried Meguires scratch remover, but I will try the polish or poorboys.

Thanks, hope it works.

What you have sounds like a form of rubbing compound. Generally it should be applied by machine regardless of what others say. (rotary buffer, etc) and then your shine wouldn't dull so much.

Following up with a polish is still a good idea, though. That'll bring everything back to normal.
