My experience has been that if you have swirl marks it means you have oxidation on the surface so you should remove that first so I would claybar it to remove the oxidation. Waxing or polishing in circles is old school before clear coat finishes came into play. Apply in straight lines like left to right and remove the same way.

This is the finish on my 15 year old ( other TT) polished from left to right.

LOL, that's funny. May be the smallest TT we've seen on here. Where did Audi hide the bed?

Uncomfortable for sleeping, bit ultra fun while o. The road.

I'm no expert, I hate waxing my 23B. For my years now I have been using a Mcguire's wash and wax. It still looks new.

Kidding aside, like @Jagiven I also use an automotive wash and wax product with pretty good results. I've used Meguiar's, Turtle, and Simoniz over the past few years, all with similar results. I like Meguiar's a bit better for the wash quality, but it is a bit pricier than the others.

The Simoniz is compatible with my pressure washer car wand, so that's what I have been using lately (2 summers).

I hate liquid wax except to touch up for small areas. I use automotive paste wax, usually Meguiar's or Mothers.

Bed? Where's the toilet?

X2 on the Mothers and I run around it one more time with the BlackFire Midnight Sun.

Doc, in the other TT there’s no drinking or eating and a toilet was almost needed when DW and I were at a rally, now she stays home!

Would it be safe to refer to the shell as fiberglass? Certainly not metal.
