I have a 2016 Audi Q5 and it has swirl marks and some minor scratches, but nothing deep. Is used their pads and bought their line of compounds, glace, wax, etc. with high hopes that they would live up to the 3M pads and compound I used in the pads. We'll they don't. The orange paid with the best deep-reaching compound didn't remove "any" of the scratches or swirl marks. Therefore, I do NOT recommend this for the anyone looking to remove any scratches or swirl marks. If you just need a wax or clay bar, do it by hand buy the 3M pads and glace with a better buffer. Also, I noticed that the pads are quite bridle in that they started flaking the top piece of after using the orange one for about five 10 minutes across the hood of my car so they don't seem to be well made. I just returned all of the materials to Amazon and will be ordering the 3M products again.
