I have tried many different brands and use the Meguiars now. I've used Brasso, Neverdull, cerium oxide and several other brands. I've found that they all work but require a LOT of effort to begin with. My favorite is the cerium oxide (jewelers rouge). you can get enough to last a lifetime on ebay or amazon for just a few dollars.

Depending on the scratches, you may have to start with something more aggressive before using the polishing compound. 3000-grit (or even coarser) may have to be your starting point.

If you have scratches that catch your finger nail, then you will have to start with at least a 1500 grit wet sanding paper and then step down from there; so 1500, 2000, then 3000, then compound, then polish. then protection
