No... doesn't work. The folks have a dark metallic blue lexus and it didn't do jack on the trunk lid.
Save your money on the scratchX and get 3m Swirl Mark remover for Darker colored cars(if he has
a dark car)

I don't recommend touchless car washes either. Even the best drive-thru touchless will not remove
all dirt and I've never seen one that you didn't have to touch-up with a towel which will just grind
whatever dirt it didn't get off the car into the car. Stick with the handwash on nice cars. =D

Yah - you can do it by hand. Try it out by hand first - remember I haven't
seen the scratching you're talking about so I don't know how aggressive
you need.

h4x0r-b0y, 3Y3 4m t41k1|\|g 4b0u7 7h47. (i'm a little rusty)

3M Perfect-It Swirl Mark Remover for darker colored cars. It's the only
one with swirl mark in it's name. Perfect-It is a full line and I wouldn't
go with the other cuts till after using this. The others a bit more aggressive.
I have the Fine Cut which I use for waterspots on glass!
