Hi thought I would treat the car to a real good clean ,did all the prep, wash ,clay dodo juice lime prime, metallic blue looked a real treat. Now to the issue, I decided to buy some Autoglym ultra deep shine ( allegedly very good for darker colours) .I could not get it to polish off it left white marks everywhere no matter how long I left it on ;I left it for a day washed it again and it looked even worse white marks on all the panels. I have eventually sorted it with a long session with quick detailer which has taken the residue off . Has anyone any experience with this polish and can tell me where i've gone wrong ?
I have used this on wife's car (black) with no problem. Autoglym SRP first, then the ultra deep shine then HD Wax. The biggest cause of problems with Autoglym is if you apply the product too heavily. Very little is required with any of their products.
On my GS430 (met bronze or desert quartz) I use the SRP followed by EGP followed by HD Wax, although the wax is only needed every few months.
Possibly you applied too much of the Ultra Deep Shine or it was possibly not compatible with the other products which you used. I think it is usually best to stick with one brand to ensure compatibility.

On another note, have you clay barred the car first? This will get rid of anything on the paint that a standard wash and polish won't, what detailers call "industrial fallout".....This stuff, which you cant see but you can feel, is what makes the paint feel rough, and more importantly would have made the UDS stick when you try and rub it off.
If you have time (and havent done so before) get a claybar kit and give the car a good going over with it, you will notice the difference in a big way!
