  1. Strange scratches / Break in attempt?

    Alfa Stelvio
    What do you think has caused these scratches? 1. Just an accident like something has got wedged between the two surfaces.. 2. An attempted break in of the boot.. So recently I have been polishing this car and in and out the boot quite regularly so you kind of get to know every inch of the car...

  4. Any way to buff out scratches in the central instrument cluster screen?

    Alfa Giulia
    A few days ago I noticed a fair bit of dust accumulation in and around the central instrument cluster and dials. I wanted to give it a clean so took (what I thought was) a clean cloth and gave it a wipe down. I can now see a lot of very fine scratches and swirls, particularly in the central...

    My GT has lots of light scratches on the drivers side window and also a few on the passenger side. I've cleaned the window rubbers but it still seems to be getting worse.... Im wondering whether I need to take the door card off to investigate further! Has anyone else experienced this? Is it...
  6. Light scratches and swirls on uconnect

    Alfa Giulietta
    First off, apologies if this topic has already been discussed but I took a look and it doesn't seem this issue was discussed beforehand. Polished surfaces are nice to look at, but a nightmare to clean and upkeep. They seem to get all scratched even just by gently rubbing a piece of cloth...

  8. has anyone ever polished the scratches out of a 156 door handle?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My drivers door handle is badly marked, but before I take to it with a buffing wheel, has anyone else tried this? My worry id the surface finish is plated and I will buff through it. Ideally the door handles are solid alloy and will polish up nicely, but I would like more info before i start.

    My black 159 TI has light scratching in various places, the bonnet being the worst part. I just bought the car quite recently and figured I would get them machine polished out. When arriving at garage to have that done I was advised against it. They said it had been done previously and they...
  11. Have car scratches, want to polish & wax it. What products should I use?

    Car Detailing
    My car has gotten pretty scratched up. I may have an enemy scratching my car when I'm not looking, or, more realistically, it's caused by the branches and rocks flying all over the place, since I pop to the countryside a few times a month. I have never done anything of the sort. I have never...

    Troops, I may have imagined this, but am I right in thinking that there is a product that can take light scratches out of glass? I noticed today there are some marks on the inside of the passenger's side window so I wonder whether in the past, some Doris scuffed it with a ring or something...
