Meguire's Ultimate Compound should do the trick too, although S20 is much more forgiving.

I've used the ultimate compound before. Didn't do much. I will try this scholl S20.

I haven't had great success with Ultimate Compound either. I have heard others have had some good results, so I'm glad its not just me not particularly impressed with it.

As Express posted, have a look at Menzerna Polishes too, they are top notch. My polisher came with selection of Menzerna products and I liked the results achieved from them.

Iíve been using Menzerna to do paint correction for over 15 years and itís a high quality polish and at a realistic price that will remove most defects and marks when teamed with a rotary or DA and the right pads.

I have a number of grades which I use depending I what Iím trying to achieve, start with a finer cut if you are unsure and the same goes when choosing a pad, use something less aggressive to begin with.

If youíre in doubt about the polish/pad combo for your particular problem asked a reputable seller and theyíll give you some good advice on a starting point.

Also I am interested if people can post the best way to clean and maintain the fake leather seats found in most cars these days.
I am assuming there might be differences on what products to use, compared to proper leather seats.
I use the Aerospace 303 but that is probably not the best option and is not for cleaning them anyway.

The good thing about 303 Aerospace Protectant is it also does a good job at cleaning if you are not trying to remove stubborn stains.

I use Zaino Z9 Leather Cleaner in my cars, it seems to do just as good a job with the fake stuff as it does with the real deal.

This could be worth a try.

303 is absolutely fine on modern "leather" trim.

I use NV Cleanse and NV Nourish on leather, with Cleanse only used occasionally. Nourish makes the leather feel softer and doesn't leave a hideous shiny finish.

Bowden's Own make simple to use cleaning and protecting products that are well worth a look.

And I really like Autoglym Leather Care Balm, although it is on the shiny side finish wise. They also make a cleaner if required.
